New Year’s Resolutions from the 3-Day Team

As we kick off this new year, and the new decade, there is no time like the present to set your goals and plans for 2020. Whether yours are personal or professional, for this month or more long-term, setting goals help you make the most of your year. If you haven’t yet, it’s also the perfect time to commit 3 days and join our 3-Day family!

Take inspiration from your 3-Day coaches and team as you set your own 2020 resolutions.

Coach Liz

I am starting early, so it’s not really a traditional New Year’s Resolution, but I am going to get back into shape and start working out every day. Wish me luck!

Coach Molly

I will do my part to help spread the pink bubble cheer all year long! I also want to write once a day, either on my blog, in my journal or a letter/card/postcard!

Stephanie from Susan G. Komen

While I don’t make official resolutions, I DO want to make some changes, so I’m going to start small. I will be focusing on one small thing I can change that will make a difference. The first thing I’m going to do is start getting up 30 minutes earlier. This will give me time to plan my day, work out and have breakfast without feeling rushed to jump on the computer and start working! Who is joining me?

Coach Gayla

My 2020 New Year’s Resolution is to utilize my Fitbit and all of its amazing tools, like tracking exercise, steps, water and calorie intake. Here’s to accountability in the biggest way!

Coach Tisho

I want to spend more time riding my new bike. Her name is Ladybug! She’s my first real bike (unless you count the one that I got when I was 9 but that was over 35 years ago! )

Coach Amy

My 2020 resolution is simple: To shine bright.

It’s inspired by this quote that I love…

“A good life is a not a place at which you arrive, it is a lens through which you see and create the world.” — Jonathan Fields

Coach Heather

I will be taking my “I Choose ME” campaign one step further and buying a new home!

Erin from Susan G. Komen

I am going to drink more water and give up soda!

The 3-Day Team’s Favorite Memories of 2019

2019 is officially coming to a close…and what a year it was! You can re-live the magic through our photos from the walks, and by sharing your favorite memories with your 3-Day family throughout the holiday season. Our coaches, and the 3-Day team are here to get it started! Here are some of their favorite memories from the amazing 2019 3-Day Series.

Coach Amy

I loved working with my sweet team. I am grateful for these incredible luvbirds that bring so much light and love into my life. 😊 They remind me of the importance of joyful moments. I am also grateful for the conversations and crew members that bring so much meaning and inspiration to my life!

Erin from Susan G. Komen

I have so many wonderful memories of the 2019 3-Day series, but the one that stands out the most for me was the opportunity to participate in the Philadelphia 3-Day as a first-time walker! The moments of personal reflection, the high-fives and support received on the route and off, seeing the views of the city, the blisters I earned, the mac and cheese that I ate…it took my love and appreciation for this community to levels I couldn’t imagine! Plus, running the ‘Rocky’ stairs was SO. MUCH. FUN! It was affirmation that I am exactly where I am supposed to be!

Coach Liz

Some highlights of this year were having pink ice cream in Twin Cities, the amazing Closing Ceremony in Dallas/Fort Worth, and, on a personal note, taking a vacation in Panama with my husband.

Stephanie from Susan G. Komen

My favorite memory from 2019 is from the Opening Ceremony in San Diego. Harry, the gentleman who was raising the Promise Flag in memory of his wife Sheryl, was supposed to walk across the stage and down the stairs to raise the flag. When he was almost off stage he turned around and walked back to me. I was so surprised because this was not what he was supposed to do! I had no idea what was coming. He held out his hand and in it was a beautiful pink bracelet. He handed it to me and then proceeded across the stage to raise the flag.

At that moment, it wasn’t about the music, the cues, the ceremony or anything other than what was written on that bracelet: “Love life and live it every day!”

Coach Tisho

Looking around at the Closing Ceremony in New England and feeling so much pride and happiness at all we had accomplished to bring this amazing event back to Boston.

Coach Gayla

One of my favorite memories from 2019 is dancing and singing my brains out at the Finish Line Festival at Tostitos Championship Plaza at The Star in Frisco. I know I probably looked ridiculous, but after a year of planning this event, and having the end be so spectacular, I couldn’t contain myself!

Coach Kiki

I will never forget packing up slumber party tents in the Seattle rain with our amazing Super Crew member, Kirstin Black! What a time!

Coach Molly

I have so many amazing memories from this year, but I especially loved the new Honor Ceremony. I’ve been a part of the 3-Day since 2002 and it’s one of the most moving experiences I’ve witnessed on the event.

Plus, I loved watching Coach Jen dance with George Nummer in Michigan, cheering for Coach Tisho as she finished the Twin Cities 3-Day, anything that had to do with the Bingo Boyz and seeing Rene dancing in the rain in Philadelphia. We have a great team!

What Your 3-Day Coaches are Thankful For in 2019

Happy Thanksgiving! We hope you are all celebrating by surrounding yourself with love and fun! There is so much to be grateful for this year; from all of our amazing participants to our beautiful host cities to the phenomenal amount of money we raised in the fight against breast cancer.

And though many of us are spending the day relaxing with family and good food, we wanted to make sure to throw some love your way! Our 3-Day coaches, from New England to San Diego, are thankful for each and every one of you. But they’re also thankful for travel, their families, each other and more! Here are a few of our coaches’ favorite things this Thanksgiving….

I’m also grateful for the supporters who come out to the 3-Day in each city.

Coach Tisho

I’m so thankful for the ability to embrace healthy habits that I’d previously neglected. For the opportunity to travel and experience new things. And for coffee. Alllll the coffee!

Coach Molly

The opportunity to do meaningful work.

To be inspired by participants who display kindness and compassion and motivate me with their unwavering support and commitment to the causes they believe in.

To work alongside the most hardworking, loyal and FUN co-workers who make the good days and challenging moments more than worth it.

Coach Heather

I’m grateful that my Mom is doing absolutely wonderful despite her breast cancer diagnosis early in 2019!

I’m grateful that I chose ME! I’ve embraced life with the “go with the flow” attitude. And it’s been pretty awesome!

I’m so glad that I had the opportunity to be on-event with nearly every 3-Day staff member this season! The combination of various strengths, skills, and personalities from event to event allowed for a great season for me!

Coach Staci

My health, my amazing family and friends (which includes my co-workers because I’m just lucky that way!). I’m also grateful for a continued sense of wanderlust that keeps me energized and keeps my mind reeling, wondering, “What else is there to see?”

We are so thankful for our 3-Day coaches for all their hard work, on our 3-Days and all year long.

We are also thankful for all of you for your continued dedication and support of the 3-Day and the fight against breast cancer. We are honored to continue this fight alongside you.

We hope you are enjoying this day of thanks and love 😊
