Iâ€™ve been waiting for my first aquathlon for almost a year and now I am a proud finisher of an aquathlon. By experience, now I know that it is true what they said about aquathlons, itâ€™s twice as demanding as running and the experience was also twice the fun.
The race started at 11:30am for my age category and when the start was near it was all mixed excitement for my first aquathlon and fear that I wonâ€™t finish. The plan was simple, do not care about the pace of others and go with my own speed, my goal is just to finish.
It was 600 meters of swim first. Think about 100 men swimming on an 8 lane 25 meter pool, the probability of competitors bumping each other was very high. It was a good thing that my cousin, Enna a member of Trantados, briefed me well on this. I got kicked on the face and I got bumped many times, but it was OK, it was all unintentional (I hope). I think I also kicked someone, revenge is sweet. Just joking, it was all unintentional.
