Tribesports User of the Week: Vaunette C

Vaunette C profileWhat has been your toughest Tribesports Challenge and which are you most proud of?

Push ups are my least favorite physical activity so I steer clear of most of the challenges involving the dreadful push up. I really enjoy participating in team challenges, i.e. Boys vs Girls, Older vs Younger and Team Relays. With that being said, I really enjoyed the 5 Person Relay that Eddie W put together.
