June 2014 Synergy Team Conquers Ragnar
Synergy Team Conquers Ragnar
June 27-28: Twelve of Synergy’s corporate employees embarked on an adventure across Utah’s majestic Wasatch Mountain Range. They piled into two vehicles, packing enough e9 and Health Shake to fuel each of them for what ended up being an intense and unforgettable challenge.
Each employee was expected to run three separate “legs” of the 200 mile course. Many of these legs consisted of steep downhills, exposure to summer sun, rugged trails, hard pavement or significant increases in elevation. Each runner took turns, relaying through the heat of day and cold of night.
This may sound exhausting (and it definitely was), but the overall experience was far from miserable. Synergy’s team cheered-for and continuously motivated each other. They smiled through the challenge. The exhilaration and emotion of completing each leg and crossing the eventual finish line was a fantastic reward.

“It is awesome to be a part of a company that supports this kind of activity and adventure,” said Marketing Manager Jake Rothfels. “It was such a blast. Every person on our team pushed themselves and did a fantastic job. It really was a privilege to do this crazy race with each of them.”
“I’m super proud of the fact that we did this race,” said Synergy’s Event Manager Kristen Barker. “I never thought I could do something like this. I’m super grateful for Synergy supporting us the whole way.”
