Pete Kelly raced the Red Bull Neptune Steps

Just about the silliest thing I’ve done recently however, has to be that wonderful event, the Red Bull Neptune Steps. I’m not a big fan of the drink, but they sure do know how to put on a party. It was with a wee bit of trepidation that we all piled into the car and headed up to Glasgow to get our game faces on and do what doesn’t come naturally to us distance swimmers – giving it 100 per cent.
