Commitment is scary: The weeks of limbo were actually worse. Now that we’re committed, preparation butterflies far outweigh decision anxiety
It’s dangerous. Truth be told, it’s not. The Rebelle Rally is not a race for speed, it’s about navigation. We need off road driving skills, but the competitive essence appears to be navigation and strategy. We’ll find out shortly!
I'm not ready. This is easily the biggest barrier. With so little experience, we found a bazillion reasons why we couldn’t possibly be ready to compete in a rally. However, the weird peace that has come with committing to something outside the comfort zone is worth it. Hopefully 'ready' is overrated.
No Time. Like the saying goes, “If you want something done, give it to a busy person.” On top of working and managing our motherships we have a ton to learn, which means any BS in the way is sidelined.
It costs so much It takes greenbacks (American dollar notes for all you Kiwis reading this!) to put together a race like the Rebelle. We knew a sponsor was possible, but we had to take the initial risk. It was hard work finding a partner but lucky for us JUCY stepped up and is coming along for the ride. #TeamJUCY #thefrocksareoff
People will judge us. Judgy people are always lurking, deserving a mental middle finger. But when you’re really busy and dialed in, the trolls are white noise. Honestly, the amazing people we are meeting along the way far out weigh the naysayers.
What if I fail? Crash and burn is always possible. But it’s worse not even trying. We will give it our best shot, make some friends along the way and see some amazing sites. Hopefully we won’t get lost or into too much trouble.
