Andy Holder was an awesome interview! He was so easy to talk to, and so far beyond inspiring in regard to breaking the perceived barriers living with diabetes can put up in our minds.
At the age of 36, Andy Holder (aka Iron Andy) was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes with no family history to speak of. Being a husband and a father of two young boys, he was determined to show his family that diabetes was not going to limit his life! He decided to do something extraordinary in an effort to motivate and inspire other people living with diabetes.
Despite NEVER having done a triathlon before and not knowing how to swim, Andy decided to accomplish what many consider to be the ultimate test of mental and physical endurance; the Ironman triathlon!
With a positive attitude and a “can’t stop, won’t stop” mentality, Andy is now a seven-time Ironman Finisher! He now works for Insulet spreading the Omnipod love!
