Upbeat Love Songs to Fuel Your Winter Walking

3DAY_2017_SEA_MDER_0449

It can be tough to find the inspiration to get moving when it’s cold outside or there’s bad weather. However, the winter is the perfect time to start your 3-Day training! By getting in smaller, consistent training walks now, it will help you get on a good schedule for the warmer months in the future. But, if you need some extra fuel for your next training walk, we want to be here to help.

Our 3-Day Spotify has playlists of songs that you’ve heard on the event, and they will keep you walking mile after mile. But in the spirit of love, which is always a topic around this time of year, we are rounding up some upbeat love songs that will motivate you to get walking until the spring thaw.

Sunday Morning by Maroon Five: This is the perfect song to stretch to before your training or start your walk off strong and steady.

Ain’t No Mountain High Enough by Diana Ross: A fan favorite whenever we play it on the event, this song reminds us that there is no distance too great to cross for love…or that famous 3-Day mac n’ cheese!

Cheerleader by OMI: We will be cheering you on for every step of the 3-Day, and this song will cheer you through your training walk! Plus, it’s always good to remember to be each other’s cheerleaders as we go through life.

I’ll Be There for You by The Rembrandts: If you don’t get this song stuck in your head, you’re a stronger person than most. But it’s sure to make smile and keep your thoughts positive, even if it hasn’t been your day, your month or even your year.

My Life Would Suck Without You by Kelly Clarkson: Our lives would certainly suck without you 3-Dayers! Sing along to this tune as you take on those miles!

Rather Be by Clean Bandit featuring Jess Glynne: “When I am with you, there’s no place I’d rather be.” That single lyric sums up how we feel about all our 3-Day family. Our favorite days of the year are the ones we spend with all of you!

Light My Fire by The Doors: With a good consistent beat, and easy words to remember, this is the perfect love song for walking!

I Feel the Earth Move by Carol King: Hopefully the Earth is moving under your feet from strong and confident steps as you take on your training. But, if it’s also moving from feelings of love, that’s all the better 😊 The 3-Day is full of love of all kinds!

Come On Eileen by Dexys Midnight Runners: Just insert your own name in the chorus to keep yourself moving!

What are some of your favorite songs to walk to? We want to know what gets your feet moving! We might even make a playlist of all your favorites. Until then, enjoy the 3-Day Spotify playlists we have at the ready for you!

Happy Monday! Though it might not be everyone’s favorite day of the week, Monday has an important spot in our lives. It’s a fresh start, and a chance for all of us to make the most of the new week. What could we accomplish?

Maybe, make a new fundraising project?

Or use our favorite tunes to fuel an extra-long training walk for the 3-Day?

Share a memory with your 3-Day family?

Or join them online to start working your way to great prizes?

Maybe you do all that in one day!

Sometimes though, despite our best intentions, the days get away from us and sometimes things go wrong. We might miss a deadline or burn breakfast or run late to an appointment. On tough days, especially on tough Mondays, it’s also important to celebrate life’s little wins.

Happy moments can come upon you when you least expect it, and they are definitely worth celebrating.

So, celebrate the next time you…
