Runners are almost always looking to achieve a goal. It might be to run a specific pace, a certain distance or in this case, a running streak. According to RunnersWorld.com, “a run streak simply means running on consecutive days, for a set period of time, without fail. The rules are simple: you set your intended timeframe, and then all you have to do is run (most runners opt for a minimum of one mile) every single day. Your run streak can be for weeks, months, or for the exceptionally committed runner, forever.”
Maria’s personal goals might seem lofty to some, but she remains realistic with her expectations for her future running career. “My only goal is truly to just continue running. I’d love to reach 10 years or more of my running streak but I am realistic and know that life is unpredictable no matter our motivations or goals, especially after the past year. I am simply grateful my body lets me do this every day.”
When asked why she chose to run as a member of the Northeast Team Beef program, Maria shares, “Beef is delicious, and I crave it! I can feel my muscles yelling “yes” especially after a recovery burger! Beef is so versatile.” She continues, “There have not been many opportunities for races this year, but I have run “Track Tuesdays” with a number of friends for a few years. We run hard and then we have breakfast. The first time I wore my Team Beef jersey they all asked me what it was all about. “Team Beef huh?” Yep! Then we all dug into our breakfast beef chorizo tacos. Favorite Taco Tuesdays since then!”
