Friday 3 Day Blog Round Up - Labor Day Edition!

A few days late due to the holiday weekend, but here nonetheless!

First up, Kaitlin, of the blog 3 Kfine Days wrote about her experience in the Chicago 3 Day in this post

Laurie, of the blog La Vie de Laurie, wrote about her experience last weekend fundraising at her local Walmart in this great post.  

While Laurie was fundraising at Walmart, Rhea, of the blog Mommy 2 3 Monkeys, was hosting a bake sale with her teammate.  Check out some photos and read all about their bake sale here.  

Julie, who writes the blog Whatever Julie, shared her stories and pictures from the Tampa Preview Expo here.  

Speaking of Preview Expos, Cat, of the blog Fat Girl Walkin' wrote about her experience at the Expo for the Arizona 3 Day in this post.  Cat also floated a new, unique idea for a fundraiser this week: a SmashShack!  Read all about it and let her know what you think here.  Finally, Cat found some personal motivation in proving the meanies wrong, which she wrote about here

Julie, of the blog Two Pink Chicks Fo(u)r Boobs shared pictures of her unfinished fundraising quilt this week and debated the ultimate value of training versus finishing the quilt in this post.  

Rikki, of the blog Janice's Fight, shared her best motivational songs and asked for yours as well in this post.  Rikki also talked about a recent experience that reminded her that life isn't the same outside of the 3 Day Bubble in this post.  Finally, Rikki wrote about her best training buddy - her daughter - in this sweet post.  

Speaking of daughters, D'lyn, of the blog Meanderings of a 3 Day Mom, wrote about why you should think about involving your children in your fundraising and the lessons they can learn from the experience here.  D'lyn also wrote about how your "Why" determines your "How" in this post

Roberta, of the blog Journey to San Francisco... Again! shared photos and stories from her group's 20 mile walk out to Coney Island, which you can find here

The always link-worthy Jay Furr shared his personal reasons for walking in the 3 Day and being an advocate for breast cancer awareness in this highly recommended post.  Jay then followed that post up by emphasizing why it is so important that everyone donates that can because the 3 Day is facing dwindling numbers over the last few years.  You can read that important post here

Now that her 3 Day event is complete, Nallie, of the blog Pounding the Ground, has decided to kick it up a notch by running in her local Race for the Cure.  Read more about her plans to continue as an advocate for breast cancer research here

Leanne, of the blog Leanne... the Walker, explored the right way to respond when someone says "I saw you walking!" in this post.  

John, of the blog 60 Miles 3 Days, featured Leanne again this past week, this time sharing her favorite 3 Day moments.  You can watch this interview on John's blog, here.   

Nicole, of the blog One Step at a Time, talked about a reason for walking in the 3 Day that we all share: walking because we can.  Read her thoughts on this important reason for walking here

Lauri, of the blog 60 Mile Thoughts, wrote about the things we leave behind at the 3 Day (the good AND the bad!) in this important post

I link to a lot of posts about the topic of finding balance between real life and preparing for the 3 Day because I think this is a common struggle that everyone that takes on the 3 Day experiences.  Lyndsey, of the blog My 3 Day Journey, is the latest walker to talk about her efforts at finding that ever elusive balance in this post.  

Lilly, of the blog Lilly's Notepad, shared a whole slew of ways that family and friends can support their 3 Day walkers in this informative post.  Read it and share it with everyone you know! 

This past weekend was the Denver 3 Day for the Cure!  Laurie, who writes the blog Guessing All the Way, was the Energizer Keep Going Blogger for this event.  As always, she dutifully recapped each day.  You can find her write up for Day 1 here, for Day 2 here and for Day 3 here.   

Finally, with the next 3 Day event not taking place for a couple weeks, I wanted to end on this beautiful post from Kim of the blog I Want a Minivan where she remembered her mom on the eight year anniversary of her death.  Her reflections are a perfect reminder of the real reason why we are all taking part in the Breast Cancer 3 Day.
