Keeping an eye on me

I’ve been asked by quite a few people to post my number up for Sundays race so that they can track my (slow ) progress online. So here you go:

Ironman UK 2014 Andrew Holgate will be wearing No 1314

I went to register tonight with my good friend Chris Wild, The IronHippy and we both seemed fairly relaxed about it, which is good. He’ll be home a good 4-5hrs ahead of me on Sunday. The buzz at registration was cool even though it was very quiet in terms of people present. And I got to meet up with my mate Viking who told me he’ll be supporting me on Sunday whilst eating McDonalds and drinking beer…you can go off some people.
The atmosphere in Bolton over the weekend will be electric. So I’m registered, I have my number, my rucksack and a whole host of other stuff that I’ll look at on Friday night.

I only do Ironman for the backpacks : Germany 2009, Lanza 2012, UK 2014

I’m READY, I’m EXCITED and I BELIEVE. Come Sunday I’ll smile and keep moving forward.

Now if you want to track me go to http://www.ironman.com and look for an Ironman Live link to the Bolton race. You can then chose ATHLETE TRACKER and type in my number or surname, but be warned it often breaks.

Knowing that people will be sparing a thought for me on their own busy day is a massive lift and will help me immensely. Thanks everyone for your support – see you on the other side of 140.6.
