Missed this thread the first time round.... The run/walk combo is AWESOME and not really that much slower than running the whole thing. I know folk here who do 10:1 (10 mins run, 1 walk) and 8:2 is also popular.
Being scared is fine, everyone gets nervous for raceday. Try the run/walk intervals but most of all, enjoy!
EDITED to add:
The magic of raceday will also be a BIG help.

If God invented marathons to keep people from doing anything more stupid, the triathlon must have taken Him completely by surprise.
