    When James Lawrence (aka the Iron Cowboy) announced his plan to complete 50 Ironman distances in 50 consecutive days in all 50 states, the only person who believed that he could pull it off was James himself. An Iron Man distance consists of a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bike ride, and a 26.2-mile run. completing one race is considered a lifetime achievement. With the support of his wife, Sunny, and their five children in tow, Lawrence pushes himself to the point of breaking. This is an unbelievable mental and physical journey that redefines the limits of what is humanly possible.

    Crazy story. This film seemed to mostly focus on his misery. I would have liked to have seen more fun scenes from his daily adventure. Amazing achievement though. However, he definitely shouldn't have substituted the elliptical for the run on the day he couldn't run. Should have found a way to walk the marathon.
