Show Me Challenge – Aspired > Believed > Conquered!September 17, 2009
The Show Me Challenge has been Conquered by the Factor Founders! After running and riding 283 miles in just over 30 hours in a span of four days, we have climbed this mountain! Just as important to us, we were able to raise over $5,600 for the Touched By Cancer Foundation. We want to thank each of you who generously and graciously donated to support our efforts and this great foundation.
It was not easy as you can see by the videos, but it was a Challenge worth fighting to Conquer. There is no way it would have been possible without our sponsors, and I would like to take just a few sentences to recognize them.
First, and foremost, Koach Karl of Athlon Endurance was absolutely critical. Koach put us in a position for success. From the moment we met on an early Saturday morning back in late May until the finish line at the Arch, Koach was right there with us encouraging us to keep going. I highly recommend you check out www.koachkarl.com. He can and will help you go farther than you ever thought possible. His motto is… “No Boundaries”, and he constantly encourages his clients not to set limits because we are all capable of more than we think.
Also, we want to say a special thank you to Staybridge Suites in Independence (specifically, Noble Hospitality), Columbia, and St. Louis for the accommodations, which is the perfect place to stay whether on business or out with the whole family. Please visit www.staybridgesuites.com for more details on this great hotel.
Bike America, www.bikekc.com, Garry Gribbles Running Sports, www.garrygribbles.com, were two great sponsors that provided a tremendous amount of support. They will meet all of your biking and running needs to keep you going.
We also would like to thank Endurance Planet, www.enduranceplanet.com, for the coverage before and during the event. Also, there is no doubt in my mind that we would not have been as successful in this event had it not been for great nutrition. The fuel for the Show Me Challenge was Isagenix. Please visit www.sheldon1.isagenix.com for more details on Isagenix.
Last, and certainly not least, both Matt and I would like to thank our family, friends, and business associates for their incredible support for this event. We would not have been able to get through the last 4-1/2 months of training and through these 4 grueling days had it not been for the great encouragement of each of you.
We are already considering our next Challenge. What will it be? Where will we go? Please stay tuned for more from the Factor Founders. In the meantime, check out products page on our website.

We are pumped about the direction of Challenge Factor, and it will only be successful because of you!
