ME ME ME!!! And it's not just with a safety cone, screaming at the eventgoers as they enter the event. I'm actually on the speakers panel.
When I originally confirmed for this engagement, I was really excited. My big chance to tell a bunch of eager ears why a vegan diet is preferable for athletes. But then i started to think about it a little more - I will have to stand up in front of all those people and entertain them for an hour straight! Cyclo-cross races aren't even that long!
Luckily Art Eggertsen, AKA the Food Coach & founder of ProBar, is flying over from Utah to chip in on the entertainment. He will follow my presentation to provide the audience with nutritional facts and findings. So when i warn a weekend tennis warrior to step away from that skinless chicken wing for fear that her backhand will suffer, Art will provide the "why".
If you're in San Francisco this Sunday and want to heckle me, the event is being held in Golden Gate Park at the Garden Room. I speak at 4pm. Oh, and i'm also presenting Dr. Elliot Katz, president of IDA (In Defense of Animals) at 2:45pm. Since I am a spokesperson for the organization, he asked me to introduce him.
Visit World Veggie Day Website for more info. You can find Art at the speakers table all weekend. I'll be there Sunday afternoon only. Hope to see you there!
