Dion is a fan of protein smoothies and exercise. Casey uses giant post-it notes for wild ideas while Steve likes having a whiteboard in his bathroom. At a brainstorming meeting, Marcus has everyone trying brain cages to stimulate their thinking. Casey and Steve dream up a new shoe idea that will enable hiking, jumping and swimming ideal for triathletes.
