Can you run 50 miles a day in every US State?
Lisa Batchen-Smith undertook the project "Running Hope Through America" to help raise funds and awareness for orphan children. From April 19th to June 19th, 2010, Lisa Smith Batchen, one of the world's premier ultra-runners, will be the first person to attempt to run 50 miles in each of the 50 states. That's 2500 miles of running over just 60 days!
SaltStick is along for the run, and has become a necessary part of Lisa's nutrition and hydration plan. In the words of her support team: "50 miles in 23 very hot, humid states has required a constant intake of SaltStick. Lisa feels good, runs strong and finishes every mile daily; this would have been impossible without your product! And it will be impossible to continue forward at the same pace without the regular dose of SaltStick."

Jordan Romero at North Col/Camp 1 and ready for Everest Summit!
SaltStick-sponsored athlete Jordan Romero, age 13, continues his quest for the 7 Summits. Jordan has ascended from "Advanced Base Camp" and today is at the North Col/ Camp 1. Based on the weather, he plans to summit Mount Everest over the NEXT FEW DAYS
. By doing so, he will be the youngest person to ever summit the mountain, and after his planned ascent of a mountain in Antarctica, will be the youngest to complete the 7 summits.
What do Jordan and his pro-adventure racer dad Paul Romero say about the product? "The SaltStick Caps are great, we make sure we take them at least every hour. People think Everest is freezing all the time, its not.. it can be scorching in the sun. We take them all the time regardless."
Howard and Jack's Desert Race in OZ
SaltStick athletes Howard Cohen and Jack Fierstadt just completed the grueling 6-day self-supported desert run in Australia's Kimberly area. The conditions were brutally hot and humid, and both athletes surpassed many others suffering from dehydration and cramping, using SaltStick Caps all day, every day. Congratulations to both Howard and Jack for finishing where few others would dare. Visit the race website here: http://www.racingtheplanet.com/
