I was fortunate enough to run with Dean Karnazes when he was running 50 marathons in 50 days in 50 states. He and I just happened to run about the same pace. Me, going as hard as I could. He running at a pace that was slow enough he could run 50 of them. We met in the middle. At the time I was completely amazed that someone could pull that off. I knew how hard it was to do one. Fast forward 10 years to James Lawrence the Iron Cowboy.
I finally watched the documentary where he ran 50 IRONMANs in 50 days in 50 states. Yes Ironman. 2.4 mile swim. 120 mile bike. 26.2 run. Every….single….day for 50 days. All while traveling to the next state to do it again. Meaning no sleep. I’ve done an Ironman. It was pretty tough. I can’t even imagine getting up to do it again the next day, let alone 48 more days after that. The documentary does a good job of how difficult it was for him and how unlikely it will be done again. It’s physically and logistically almost impossible to pull off.
I’m not always impressed with feats of endurance. They merely become sufferfest and most of the people doing it really have no reason for doing it other than notoriety in the guise of raising money. For instance, the interview by Joe Rogan with Colin O’Brady was awful. O’Brady crossed Antarctica by himself with only a sled but the interview showed he exaggerated every story and was completely a me, me, me person. Every story him overcoming some great obstacle. Of course most, created by himself.
All that being said, I truly enjoy stories of people working hard. Pushing past obstacles through pure mental and physical endurance. Nothing needs to be exaggerated when things are truly difficult. The watchers and listeners know how hard it is and merely want to know how you did it and what you had to overcome. Hoping that they can take some of that with you and use it to overcome your personal obstacles. In the case of Karnazes and Lawrence, I learned that they are genetic freaks. They also have great mental fortitude and a great team behind their every step. Pushing themselves and having people to help push them along when they don’t think they can take another step. That’s exactly how life is. You have to want to and work hard to be successful. But you aren’t going to get there without all the great people there to put you back on your feat when you want to give up.
