This weekend marks International Women’s Day, and we are so proud to have many amazing women working hard for all of you on the 3-Day. They work together as a team all year long to make sure you are supported and loved through every step of your 3-Day journey, from the moment you register to the moment you finish those 60 miles — and beyond.
Now, they are supporting and loving each other as well! We asked our 3-Day team to share what they love about each other, and their group of working women as a whole. Here’s what they had to say…
I am incredibly lucky to work with a group of highly engaged, passionate women who are smart, strategic and most importantly, have an awesome sense of humor! We work hard, we work smart and we work with love in our hearts.
I have so much love for my sweet Crew and Volunteer Operations girls (Robin & Kiki) and my local San Diego team (Staci & Meredith)! This quote makes me think of them:
“In life, you will realize there is a role for everyone you meet. Some will test you; some will use you; some will love you; some will teach you. But the ones who are truly important are the ones who bring out the best in you. They are the rare and amazing people who remind you why it’s worth it.”
SO true of my sweet little team. They make me better.
Each woman who works on the 3-Day is committed to always doing their best and giving their all. It has been such an incredible honor to lead and work alongside this incredible group of women who work tirelessly to give our participants the very best of themselves and the very best event experience each year. The day in and day out of this job is made so much better because of who I get to do it with!
They all just rock! Heather’s energy is limitless, Gayla’s passion is unmatched, Liz’s knowledge is astounding, Staci’s patience is incredible, and Molly’s ability to keep us all organized and motivated is phenomenal. It’s truly a Dream Team!
Working with the women of the 3-Day is the best thing ever! I especially like our Wednesday team calls when Molly asks the “SFQs” — Super Fun Questions – at the beginning of the meeting. It’s a great intro and always makes me laugh…A LOT! It’s also a great way to get to know each other a little better, even though we’ve worked together for many years.
Examples of funny SFQs are:
- Do you sleep with a top sheet or no?
- Would you rather always say everything on your mind or never speak again?
The 3-Day coaches, Gayla, Heather, Molly, Tisho, and Staci are the best! We all support, encourage and take care of each other every day. We know we have each other to lean on.
What do you love most about your 3-Day coaches? Do you have a special memory of when they helped you or supported you most? Tell us in the comments!
