James Lawrence is an athlete, a husband and a proud father of four daughters and a son. He competes in endurance races and Ironman Triathlons and currently holds two world records in 70.3 and 140.6 triathlon racing. You’d think that would be enough right?
His new goal?
50 Ironman courses, 50 consecutive days, through all 50 States.
From James’ website, Ironcowboy.co :
“I dominated the 2012 World Record, smashing it by 10 races, winning 2 titles and placing 2nd in five others. My mind and body actually got stronger as I progressed through the 30 races through 11 countries. I know my limits were not reached in 2012 and want to test the true limits of my mind and body with this new 50 – 50- 50 challenge. And I want the people of the United States and around the world to join me.
I will test my mind and body beyond what anyone thinks is possible and I invite the entire United States to join me and my family as we race across the country. When I tell someone what I am doing the first thing they say is, “That’s impossible, you can’t do that”
They also said –
“You can’t do 22 half ironman 70.3 races in 30 weeks!”
YES I CAN, and I DID!! (Guinness World Record)
They also said –
“You can’t do 30 full Ironman 140.6 races in one year!”
YES I CAN, and I DID!! – (Guinness World Record)
Now they Say –
“You can’t do 50 full Ironman 140.6 races 50 Days through 50 States – that is impossible”
YES I CAN, and I WILL.. Only this time I want to inspire the nation to join me.”
