When Fear Takes Over ….. What’s Stopping You?

When Fear Takes Over ….. What’s Stopping You?

Trying a new challenge, or daring to go to a new event when you don’t know anybody .....FEAR can stop us from trying new things and experiences. Fear shows up in many ways including procrastination, anxiety, reclusiveness or just plain avoidance. When it comes to adventure, our hope is to help women ease gently into something new in the outdoors.

We asked our good friend and coach Rowena Hardy from Minds Aligned to talk to us about what we can do to reduce our fears and help us take action on something we have always wanted to.

5 Must-Try Beginners Adventure Races to try in the Mackay region

Adventure races are a fabulous way to get outdoors in nature, meet new people and have a great time, but for many of us, it is daunting to enter a race and compete against seasoned athletes when we are just starting out. Luckily there are a lot of events on the local race calendar which cater for those who haven’t exercised in a while or want to have a go at something new.

I met Liz Nash at the Zach Mack Adventure race – a five year old and exciting adventure race spanning 80kms and incorporating mountain bike, kayak, trail run and road cycle through the pristine Pioneer Valley in the Mackay region in Queensland.  Liz was one part of a two woman team and was completing the 12 km trail run and 30km road cycle in succession.
