James Lawrence, aka the “Iron Cowboy” is on pace to smash his own world record and today, if successful, will do exactly that as he completes Ironman triathlon event number 31 on his quest to 50 in as many days!
So Who is the Iron Cowboy?
James Lawrence, is the current Guinness Book of World Records holder for most triathlons run in one year (30) and has now embarked on a physical feat that many would deem impossible, as he’s currently attempting 50 Ironman courses, in 50 days and in all 50 states! In an attempt to raise $1 million dollars to raise awareness of childhood obesity he’s teamed up with the Jamie Oliver Foundation with 100% of donations going to this great foundation that “will provide direct financial support to schools that wish to incorporate practical food education on the curriculum.”
