|With much anticipation and intrepidation I skulked down to Bray seafront last Wednesday to partake in the first of the Bray Aquathon Series.|
There was a flurry of activity at registration where I felt a little bit of a fake - a lot of serious athletes were there, those who have been training religiously all year.
To be honest I really did just want to be a spectator at that stage. My worst fear was the jelly fish and after that- would I collapse midway through the swim and have to be fished out by a rescue boat. Natural fears, probably the adrenalin buzzing in my tummy required to get the motor going but difficult to deal with all the same.
