SEA BRIGHT: IRON COWBOY WRAPS 29TH TRI

iron cowboy 070415 7iron cowboy 070415 9Iron Cowboy” James Lawrence, who’s on a 50-day campaign to do 50 triathlon-length workouts in 50 states to call attention to the obesity epidemic, completed his 29th on Saturday, arriving at the Beachwalk motel in Sea Bright at 10:18 p.m, more than 15 hours after his day began.

“He’s like a machine,” said borough Councilman Charlie Rooney, who escorted Lawrence by boat as the Utah man began his day with a 2.4-mile swim in Sandy Hook Bay. Rooney and other cyclists also accompanied Lawrence on a 112.29-mile bike ride. The day ended with a 26.2-mile marathon-length run for Lawrence and members of the Sandy Hookers Tri Club.

Is he nuts? “I’m very aware of my mind and my body,” Lawrence told redbankgreen. “This is very purposeful.”
