Party in L.A.

 I'm psyched to have been invited (again) to the Endurance Live Awards in Los Angeles on February 23rd. In 2000 I was voted USA Triathlon's Triathlete of the Year and attended the show rubbing shoulders with the best endurance athletes in the world. This time however I'm not getting anything but drunk. The tables at the banquet cost $2000 a piece but Endurance Planet's Ben Greenfield has stepped up and purchased a table and he's now offering seats to the first 7 people to e-mail him at The cost is $250.00 per person. Tawnee, Ben and myself will be at the table and we're guaranteeing a crazy good time. The price includes a 3 course meal, drinks and access to the VIP after party. Listen to Ben's latest nutrition podcast to find out the details.
 I have to admit this is outside of my comfort window. Tuxedo? And Tawnee said I have to shave which could be a deal breaker. I think it would be good to have a representative from the Colorado mountain hillbilly community to keep it real.

 A few people who were there last year-
Danny Hart (awesome!)
Ned Overend
Lukas Verzbicas
Jenny Barringer Simpson
Craig Alexander
Chrissie Wellington
Apolo Anton Ohno
Meb Keflezighi

If I can sit next to Tawnee, I'm in.

Having to stomach Los Angeles is a deal-breaker for me! Although, I do know a damn good Korean BBQ restaurant that would ALMOST make LA travel, justifiable. Have fun!

Lucho said...

Rob- I'll ignore the city and focus on partying with Ben and Tawnee. Plus the VIP party should be pretty awesome. I think Will Ferrell was there last year.

If I can sit on tawnee's lap and not have to pay, I'm in.

Footfeathers said...

Actually, may I sit on Ben's lap and have him feed me MAP pills?

Lucho said...

Don't take MAP... I want my Leadman record to stay around.
And you'll have to wait in line to sit on Tawnee's lap.

Psyched for you! And Danny Hart was there last year??? Sick! Live it up and have a drink for me!

Crap, the 23rd? Of February. I have a key workout that day.

I'm thinkin' cowboy hat, the best suit or jacket you can muster, and cowboy boots. See if you can carry one of Olivia's pups around while you are mingling.

Tawnee Prazak, M.S., CSCS said...

Oh my god, these comments... funny shit.

Lucho, I like your idea of a fatty mustache and 70s leisure suit more than the freshly shaven look. Then you'll have Chrissie wanting to sit on your lap... or maybe even Macca, I hear he gets crazy ;)

Is it Feb 23 yet?!

Lucho said...

I'll definitely be representing the ultrarunning crowd.
