This week I am excited to bring you a fantastic interview. It’s been awhile since I’ve done one and I couldn’t be more excited to bring them back. This week I’m excited to share with you a fantastic conversation I had with Sunny Lawrence, someone I’ve known and adored for a long time, and the wife of James Lawrence, the Iron Cowboy. 

If you are familiar with adventure racing or endurance sports at all, you’ve no doubt heard of the Iron Cowboy and his remarkable accomplishments. Whether it’s 50 Ironman Races in 50 states in 50 consecutive days or the recent World’s Toughest Race: Eco-Challenge Fiji, James dreams big and shows up day after day. 

Just as remarkable is Sunny and how she has balanced family life, her own big goals, and her partner’s dreams. We sit down to talk about what it means to have a partnership marriage–the good, the bad and the ugly. Sunny brings wit and wisdom as she discusses how they have prepared for James’ latest challenge – the Conquer 100- which they begin this week. 

Learn more about Sunny:

I am Utah native and have a college degree from Utah Valley University in the field of Psychology. I married James in December of 2000 and we are loving life together. We have five children, four daughters and one son on the end. I have always loved being a mom, as well as James’ #1 supporter through all of his accomplishments. We balance each other out and make a great team.

I am excited about starting my own career, and heading into the second half of my life. I am passionate about people, and love getting to know anyone with whom I cross paths. I am regularly told that I am a ray of sunshine and that my personality fits my name.

I have been an athlete for most years of my life, and have enjoyed the calmed down version now that I am entering the next chapter of my life. Golf has waited many years, and is now something that I love to do, especially in my hot pink golf shoes.
