Flamethrower: The Iron Cowboy James Lawrence

I just recently gave an award-winning speech, I can’t post it yet as the competition is on-going…but I will as soon as I can, and included James Lawrence in it. If you a wondering who James Lawrence is, I’ll just tell you what he accomplished because it explains a lot: in 2015 he completed 50-triatholons, in 50-days, in 50-states.  He averaged 4.5-hours of sleep every night and swam a number of the competitions with only one-arm because of a torn shoulder muscle sustained on day #5. Here is a great article about him here: http://www.redbull.com/us/en/adventure/stories/1331739321621/iron-cowboy-50-marathons-50-states-50-days

The reason I find James’ story so inspiring is because, as far as I can tell, there was no EXTERNAL reason for him to complete this goal: no one was going to give him a gold medal for doing it. He did it because he wanted to and he was willing to put in the work day-after-day to accomplish it. As Dan Brown said:

“Everything is possible. The impossible just takes longer.”

Thanks for spreading your light James!
