- A Texas (Cycling) Star
Work with us here at Clif Bar and you may end up a champion. Well, that and do a whole lot of training. Cristin Walker, our Houston Field Marketing Crew Captain has always been a champion in our minds, but now she’s got the title and the trophy to prove it. Read on to hear her recent account of the road to the top…
I pulled into my driveway last night after five weeks of training in LA. Turns out it paid off because I'm now the 2009 Elite Women's Sprint National Champion, the 500m National Champion AND the Keirin National Champion! And if that was not enough, I also took home the U23 National titles in the 500m and the sprints and pulled off 2 PRs-- 36.68 in the 500 (smashing my previous PR by 7 tenths!) and a 12.1 in the 200m!! A bike throw at the end secured the Keirin win.
Needless to say, I'm absolutely, positively THRILLED!!!
I have to say a huge thanks to Clif Barnot many jobs would allow me to enjoy what I do and also let me train at this level. Clif Bar has definitely been a blessing. Thank you for understanding and supporting this dream of mine. Hopefully there are more good things to come!!
