My hubby and I have entered the {Turbovite Jump City DBN} race. And it's TOMORROW!
It's a 10 km obstacle race in and around Durban city. I have never done anything of the sort before so feeling a little nervous about what to expect ... I DON'T want to be the lagging aunty in the back that everyone feels sorry for! Ha. So wish me luck! If you are also taking part, see you there :)
