"This weekend was one of the most challenging yet incredible times of my life.
I came to this event not knowing one person and barely having any experience on a dirt bike. I naturally had a lot of anxious nerves in the beginning, however every woman that I came to meet at this event showed such genuine support and encouragement. They didn’t just make me feel comfortable, they made me feel empowered. 💪🏼✨
I left this event with new friends and multiple milestones and successes on (and off) the bike. It truly shows how powerful women are when they come together.
Someone explained that it’s the feeling you leave with after the event that’s both indescribable and powerful, I couldn’t agree more because I’m still sitting in this feeling today.
I know this is long so if you take one thing from this post: remember, if you truly want to do something new, something that’s out of your comfort zone or something that scares you, dive in and do it. Don’t be afraid to do it alone and don’t let your own self stop you.
I’m so thankful that I was able to attend this event. Thanks again to Mountainist and Dirtastic for providing this opportunity. 💕
I cannot wait to attend again next year! 🎉 In the meantime, I plan to grab some more seat time!"
