Jacki Musgrave of Bingham, Neb., ran the 115th Annual Boston Marathon on Monday, April 18th, held in Boston, Mass. Jacki was one of thirteen runners from across the United States, running as Team BEEF members. A total of 27,000 runners ran the Boston Marathon, which is considered the “mecca” for marathon runners.

Raised a ranch girl and now working in the beef industry as a technologist in beef nutrition research and eating beef as a regular part of her diet, it was a natural fit for Jacki to agree to be a part of Team BEEF. Each Team BEEF member ran the marathon with a black and red jersey with a large t-bone steak image on the front and back. The words TEAM ZIP (zip, iron, protein) were on the front of the jersey and BEEF – It’s What’s for Dinner – Running Powered by BEEF, were on the back. The jersey stood out and was very noticeable.

Jacki started running seven years ago. “I began running to improve my overall health and running was something I could do anywhere, without a lot of specialized equipment.” Jacki feels running provides a great workout for the amount of time you invest.

Jacki was raised on a commercial cow/calf ranch in Sentinel Butte, N.D. She now resides in Bingham, Neb., with her husband Scott and their two boys, Wyatt and Zane. She works at the Gudmundsen Research Lab in Whitman, Neb., as a research technologist working in grazing cattle nutrition for the University of Nebraska.

Jacki qualified for the Boston Marathon at Bismarck, N.D., last September.

She has run in eight marathons in six states, beginning with the Mount Rushmore Marathon in South Dakota in 2006. She hopes to continue running and seeing the country as she travels to more events.
