I Raced 50 Ironmans,
in 50 US States,
in Just 50 Days…
The Unbelievable Story of a Man Who Went from Failed
“Fun-Runner” to Guinness World Record Winner!
That’s MY personal best. Now…let me help you hit yours!
My name is James Lawrence.
You might know me as the “IronCowboy,” or the guy who broke multiple Ironman Guinness World Records.
I’ll tell you about those in a minute.
First, on July 25, 2015, I reached my biggest and most audacious goal:
I completed 50 Ironman-length triathlons in 50 US states, in 50 days.
(Yes, that is 7030 miles in 50 days.)
And now, I want to share with you exactly how I did it.
And not only how I did it, but how you use what I discovered to reach your goals, too!
Whether you’re a total beginner, an accomplished
triathlete or somewhere in-between…
…what I’m going to tell you here boils down to one central issue: how to help you race your best triathlon, EVER.
“Six months. All it took was six months of training with Team Ironcowboy to go from a fat guy who couldn’t run a mile, to a less fat, podium winning triathlete! My favorite part is how much unexpected fun and support I had along the way. My coaches went above and beyond to work with me to accommodate my schedule, answer my questions, and offer any support they could. The other team members, who are accomplished athletes of their own, offered advice, shared their own experiences, and helped create a supportive, inspiring, and entertaining online community. Looking forward to growing stronger, faster, and wiser in the next six months with Team Ironcowboy!”
Team IronCowboy Member, Yusuf R.
Now, only you know what that means for you…
For most triathletes, their outcome typically falls into one of two buckets:
1. It was misery and it sucked and they’ll never do it again… OR,
2. They LOVED it, and can’t wait to sign up for another race!
In my experience, your results will flow from your training plan. This is an exceptionally tricky area because it’s so time-intensive.
There IS a Shortcut to Success…
Listen to this story, as I heard it via email:
At the boulder 70.3 ironman a month ago I passed out water at an aid station on the run for like 1.5 hours. It was a super hot day. People were miserable. I probably saw 1500 athletes come through that aid station and almost 100% of people were miserable…
Only 20 weren’t miserable. Six of those 20 were girls who James had trained. None of James’ athletes were miserable. And, all those women finished the race, and beat most of their male friends who did it.
From having been at that event, I can tell you those six girls actually had fun. They were ready on race day, and using the training programs I gave them, they enjoyed excellent races on a very tough day.
Now, before I continue, I must admit:
I wasn’t always a famous triathlete.
And before being featured by
Runner’s World, GQ, Red Bull and other big brands…
I Barely Finish My First Race!
It was a four-mile fun run.
And let me tell you, I was pathetic.
By the end of the race, I was a suffering, wheezing mess. My lungs were burning in agony, and as I stumbled forward, I saw a pitiful sight:
“Race-walkers,” and mothers – pushing children in strollers – were breezing past me in the home-stretch!
I was a total failure.
It was enough to make me want to puke. And quit.
But I didn’t.
Instead, I asked myself a question: If complete and utter failure feels this bad… how great would success feel?
It changed my life
“I’ve never been able to run more than 3.5 miles. I have a mental (and thought I had a physical) block! Within 3 weeks of starting the TeamIronCowboy training, I ran 9 miles! With the swim workouts, swimming became fun for me. I’m 50 and I just finished my first Olympic distance tri. I finished 1 minute behind my 38 year old friend who trained a ton, but without TeamIronCowboy. I’m sold. I’ll never train without you guys again!”
I Went Down a “Rabbit-Hole” that
Over the next couple years, I spent hundreds, then thousands of dollars scouring every endurance training resource I could find.
I felt like most of it was junk, so I started seeking out the top experts, and asking them straight up:
If you didn’t have to write a 200-page book and instead simply needed to share the top 3 or 5 tips for maximizing endurance, what would those tips be?
What I discovered took me from normal guy failing, to breaking world records…
In 2010, I smashed the Guinness Half Ironman World Record!
In 2012, I found out the most full IRONMAN races completed in 12 months was 20.
By the end of the year, I had crushed that Guinness World Record too, with 30!
By then, everybody was asking:
How did this “fun-run failure” suddenly put his name in the Guinness Book of World Records… TWICE, not to mention doing what no other human being has even attempted with the 50 Ironmans in 50 days and 50 states!?
Well, let me tell you how it all happened…
What Can an Italian Economist Teach Us
About Running Triathlons?
Like you, I needed to maximize my training without wasting unnecessary energy.
Enter Vilfredo Pareto…
This obscure Italian economist changed everything with his Pareto Principle. You probably know it as the 80/20 rule.
Basically, Pareto found that (roughly) 80% of your results come from just 20% of your effort.
Pareto found that 20% of the pea pods in his backyard garden contained 80% of the peas… that 80% of land in Italy was controlled by 20% of the people, and so forth.
The numbers don’t have to be exact… as in:
If you know 10% of musical chords, you can play 90% of the songs.
If you know the most common 2000 words in a language, you can speak 80% fluency.
You get the idea.
With triathlon training, I’ve proven it, time and time again: just 20% of effort gets you 80% of the results!
In fact, your biggest immediate takeaway is this…
You’ve Been Training Way Too Hard for
Your next Triathlon!
You see, most people focus on the 20% activities and get minuscule results.
My team and I teach tri-athletes how to shift their focus to the right things, and get massive, record-shattering results!
Over the years, I’ve coached many now-successful triathletes.
And I wanted to find a way to honor these amazing 80/20 principles, and help you reach your triathlon goals…
That’s why I’ve created a brand-new online coaching community that leverages the power of 80/20!

“Boulder 70.3 Ironman was my first half. Not only did I finish, I kicked the pants off my two male friends who did the race. I’ll never train without 80/20 again!”
Team Member , Kim J.
“Thanks Team IronCowboy! Ironman Texas was a success with a time of 8:44 (95 mile bike) qualifying me for Kona. I had some serious questions … and David was quick to answer them.”
Team Member , Brian P.
“Today was a turning point. I went out on a trail … with the boys … my Zone 2 run. I managed to keep myself in the appropriate heart rate and when my buddies started pulling away from me I was able to just let them go, committed to the plan! After 10 miles I rolled into the parking lot feeling fresh and thinking I could have ran all day … they got to the truck only 2 minutes ahead of me huffing and puffing. I’m sold! Loving this plan!”
