Can't Swim, Can't Ride, Can't Run has scooped another award, winning the best book category at the 2014 Running Awards.

 

Author Andy Holgate collected was presented with his award by Mike Bushell at a gala evening in London on 10th April 2014.

 

Can't Swim, Can't Ride, Can't Run is the inspirational true story of one man's journey from flab to super-fitness, following Andy's epic journey from being an overweight librarian to an Ironman triathlete.

 

Before he could even begin the rollercoaster ride which amassed more punctures than Andy cares to remember, this would-be Superman had first to buy a second-hand bike and take swimming lessons.

 

Along the way, he ended up in hospital, dealt with family crises, encountered crocodiles and deadly amoebas, and persuaded his friends that doing an Ironman event is what normal people do on their stag weekend.

 

This is the inspirational, amusing and moving story of how one normal bloke learnt how to fall off a bike and not injure himself, to run a marathon despite two dodgy knees, and most importantly, how not to drown.
