LUNA Chix Tri Team

Every now and then I invite one of our sponsored athletes or teams to come by the Berkeley Clif Bar Inc. office and spend an evening on stage speaking to local fans.

Team CLIF Media Center events have seen the likes of Tyler Hamilton, Mark McCormack, the LUNA Chix Professional Mountain Bike Team, Nathan O’Neill and Hans Rey. On Tuesday March 15th we added the LUNA Chix Triathlon Team to the event mix and introduced the newly launched team to an enthusiastic crowd of tri fans, industry personalities and friends of LUNA and CLIF BAR.

SOMA Half Ironman 2nd place finisher and USAT All-American Triathlete Terra Castro, two-time Professional Duathlete of the Year Desiree Ficker, and three-time Ironman Champion Heather Gollnick took to the stage to chat about the joys and challenges of triathlon.

Desiree nearly didn’t make it. Her flight was delayed in Denver, the airline lost one of her bags, and I had to ingest a good number of caffeinated Cola Buzzzz CLIF SHOT just to stay awake late enough to pick her up at the airport. Kind of a rough, sleep-deprived start to the whole gig, but Desiree weathered the situation extremely well and somehow we both looked relatively awake on Tuesday.

Caffeine is my co-pilot.
