Well, our first launch has dropped, and if I said I wasn’t running on fumes I’d be lying. It seems like we’ve been working towards this moment non stop for the last 6 months, but it turns out that was just the warm up, and now we’re onto the marathon. Exciting? Heck Yes. Daunting? Let’s not even go there right now. I sometimes feel like 100K is a freight train and we’re just trying to keep this beast on the tracks! An amazing freight train full of dreams, but a freight train none the less.
July 1, 2021 was one for the books and both Robyn and I were blown out of the water by the support and enthusiasm we encountered that day. Talk about a celebration! It may have included a few more adult bevvys than intended, but definitely a GOOD day. And now we are on the marathon to keep this thing going. To change as many lives as we can, and to make waves in an industry that has grown so much, but still has so much to do.
How are we going to do that you ask? Well.. we’ve always dreamt BIG. Big enough that our husbands I’m sure think we are crazy at times, but that’s a whole other story. And to be completely honest, we’re not 100% sure yet, but we think if we offer enough opportunities for competition and growth, create incentives, support athletes and make educational opportunities more accessible to up and comers that we can really foster the growth we want to see in rodeo and for the women who have the dream to compete.
Because in the wise words of Calamity Jane – I figure if a girl wants to be a legend, then she should just go ahead and be one.
