Iron Cowboy Completes Bicycle Portion of 15TH Ironman in Wildwood

What is an Iron Cowboy? What is an Ironman? First of all, an Ironman is a distance in a sporting event called triathlon, combining swimming, bicycling, and running. The distance is a 2.4 mile swim, a 112 mile bicycle ride, and a 26.2 mile run! Yes, you are reading those distances correctly, they are not an error. The Iron Cowboy (James Lawrence) is going to do fifty (50) Ironman triathlons, in fifty (50) days, in fifty (50) different states! The reason you ask? The Iron Cowboy (James Lawrence) has a goal to raise One Million Dollars to fight the obesity crisis in the United States. The money raised will be for two (2) purposes: to provide direct financial support to schools that wish to incorporate practical food education on the curriculum; and to provide funding for research to ensure that the interventions and materials created, will continue to have the biggest impact and drive the behavioral change that is needed to truly reverse the current obesity crisis.
 
The Iron Cowboy has many supporters!! For the fifteen straight Ironman triathlons he has done so far, local athletes and enthusiasts have joined him to keep him company for the fourteen (14) plus hours it takes to complete the distance! Here in Missouri, members of the Swim/Bike/Run Triathlon Club and Fleet Feet Running members helped him pass the time. The swim portion took place at Lake St. Louis, the Bicycle leg took place in Wildwood, and the run was completed on the Katy Trail. Fifty (50) Ironman Triathlons in a lifetime is a lofty goal, but fifty (50) Ironman Triathlons in fifty (50) days, in fifty (50) different states??? Well, if it can be done, the Iron Cowboy is the person to do it!!!
