In the movies, you know Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man, a superhero who defends those in jeopardy.

But did you know in real life, Fast Money trader Guy Adami is an Iron Man, too?

Of course, his costume isn't held together with rivets.

Adami wears shorts, a t-shirt, bike pants and even a swim suit - he's part of a team of athletes running the first ever IronMan US Championship in New York City on August 11, 2012.

The 140.6-mile race will include a 2.4-mile swim in the Hudson River; a 112-mile bike ride on the Palisades Parkway in Bergen and Rockland Counties; and a 26.2-mile run beginning in Fort Lee, New Jersey and finishing in Riverside Park in Manhattan.

And just like Iron Man in the movies, Adami is taking on the challenge for the greater good.

He’s raising money - at least a half million dollars, he says -- for theLeukemia and Lymphoma Society in the hopes that brave men and women fighting these terrible cancers can ultimately beat their foe into submission – just like Iron Man.
