Can't Swim, Can't Ride, Can't Run: My Triathlon Journey from Common Man to Ironman [9781848187436]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
A 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bike ride and a 26.2-mile run make up the Ironman triathlon. It's not for the faint-hearted. What possesses an overweight, thirty-something librarian who can't swim, doesn't own a bike and has two dodgy knees to take on the hardest one-day endurance race in the world? Can't Swim, Can't Ride, Can't Run is the story of Andy Holgate's inspirational, epic and life-changing journey to become an Ironman. Lubricant, alligators, rubber suits, blisters, pirates, extreme weather, Elvis, tragedy, romance, flesh-eating amoebas, crashes, hospital visits and perhaps the most unusual stag weekend in history all play a part in this amusing and moving tale of one normal bloke's quest to arrive at his wedding intact. Oh yeah, that's right, Andy is due to get married seven days after the biggest physical challenge of his life. Will he make it down the aisle in one piece?
AUTHOR: Andy Holgate completed his first Ironman distance race, The Big Woody, in 2007. His first book, Can't Swim, Can't Ride, Can't Run, was a UK top 10 sports book, and a number one Kindle sports book. It saw Andy nominated for Best New Writer at the 2012 British Sports Book Awards; his second book Can't Sleep, Can't Train, Can't Stop was shortlisted at the 2014 awards in the Outstanding Sports Writing category.
