Meredith Kessler Wins Ironman Canada!

TEAM CLIF BAR athlete Meredith Kessler is an anomaly in pro sport. Although she is a professional triathlete performing at the highest level, she refuses to sacrifice the important things in life in order to achieve success out on the course. Meredith's daily training routine is, therefore, a super-focused regimen that fills in the spaces between her full-time job, family life, and other passions and hobbies. This is not to say that she trains lightly. Meredith recently took me through her routine, and trust me - it's brutal. Meredith is on the treadmill at 6 a.m. for an hour-long interval session, then in the pool for a good, long swim before heading into her downtown San Francisco office to put in a full day's work. After work, it's off to Velo SF to teach an exhaustively long spin class which serves as a warm-up for her regular TRX workout. Only then does she get to head back home for some well-deserved family time. It might seem crazy for a high-caliber athlete to try to maintain this type of balance, but apparently it's paying off.

A Busy 4th of July Weekend for Team Clif Bar Athletes

Wow, it's July already. Here in the magical (and rather busy) land known as Team Clif Bar, it can be tough to keep track of all that's going on this time of year.

TCB Chris McCormack

In the ongoing madness there is, however, one thing I'm certain of - over the holiday weekend, here at TCB we will be grilling way more meat and drinking far more sangria than a number of the TCB athletes who will be hard at work busting their butts at some bigtime races. On Sunday July 4th TCB triathlete Chris

Corbin, Kessler go 1-2 at Ironman Coeur d’Alene

A few weeks back Team Clif Bar triathlete Meredith Kessler sent an email asking for some bars and BLOKS to help her prep for Ironman Coeur d'Alene. Knowing that both she and fellow TCB pro Linsey Corbin would be racing in Idaho, I issued a challenge: "You guys will have to finish 1-2 or we will be forced cut you both from the program." We play hardball here in the TCB pod.
