When James Lawrence (aka
the Iron Cowboy) announced his plan to complete 50 Ironmans in 50 consecutive
days in all 50 states, the only person who believed that he could pull it off
was James himself (and his wife, Sunny). An Ironman consists of a 2.4-mile swim,
a 112-mile bike ride, and a 26.2-mile run. In Lawrence’s case, he would have to
complete those distances and then make it to the next state in time to do it
all over again the next day. Even Lawrence’s coach didn’t think he could do it!
