One of Amy's goal as an Ambassador:
"I'd love to help get more Moms interested in
running/racing/taking care of themselves."
"I plan to finish my first half-marathon, improve my
times in triathlon (I'm signed up on the 3W team for the Denver Tri), and in the
fall, I want to run Ragnar."
Thoughts on running?
"The rewards from running are endless; from boosting ones confidence in
themselves, to meeting new friends, seeing new places to becoming healthier."
A Few Race Goals:
Ragnar Relay (FL)
Boulder Sprint Triathlon
IRONMAN 70.3 World- Championships
What do you think of the 3W motto- Do What You Can?
I am motivated by the "can" part of the saying, because the "can" is the part that pushes us toward goals. The "can" isn't just about what you currently have access to do, but it is what you can set your eyes on and make happen with the resources you have or those you can strive to acquire.
Marley's Favorite Activities
"Besides running, I used to play ultimate frisbee competitively and now play more recreationally. Additionally, I snowboard, play volleyball, and canoe/kayak/white water raft."
Why 3W Races?
- I like 3W's message -
that running isn't just for elite athletes, but something that everyone can do
at a level that is right for them. I also really appreciate
their goal of improving the community in which they live and work, by supporting local charities and hosting small neighborhood runs and other local events.

marathon - and really train for it this time!

The Running Community:
"I love running for a cause - it's one of the major factors in choosing a race. I figure if I'm going to run anyway I should do so for a reason. I enjoy running in my neighborhood where I can see my neighbors and get to know them a little. I am blessed with a healthy family who can afford some luxuries and feel that it is my
responsibility - and joy - to help others who are not as fortunate."
What does the 3W motto mean to you?
"It sounds more like 3W borrowed the idea from my day to day life than anything else. Everyday when I wake up I am doing everything I
can to improve mentally, physically, and spiritually for my... community."
Ryan's awesome goal:
"Having lost 200lbs and gone from morbidly obese to healthy and fit - inspiring my patients, colleagues, and friends to become healthier naturally is my main goal"

How do you interpret 3W?
I'm not the fastest or greatest athlete there is, but I compete in every race with what I have, my own personal determination. You can do anything you want
(what you can) with what you have -- you just sometimes have to be creative in how you do it.
I'm going to PR in a sprint tri, complete an olympic Tri and also a 2 mile timed swim!
I'm [also] going to knit a sweater and this pair of cabley-bobley mittens that I've been working on for at least the last year.
Goals for the rest of year?
More consistent in living a healthy
lifestyle (eating and activity), weight loss (45lbs), run one race a month and
do some physical activity each day.

What do you think of 3W?
"When I speak about 3W, I talk about how the organization works with every day people who want to run or run-walk-run. I speak about the friendliness of the 3W running community and the comraderie of the run."

everything it can to give back to the community where those races are held."
Chris' Race Goals?
"I want to get back in shape and to be able to run a 5K
in under 30 minutes again. Also, I'd like to start building mileage so I can tackle another Marathon in 2014."
What do you think about running?
"I am a fairly new runner. In fact, I hated to run until just over a year ago when I set a goal for myself to run a 5K. I trained really hard and my
goals even evolved as I got better and better and now I enjoy getting out and running. I want to share this opportunity with others in my social group and beyond who might be like me and think that running is something that they might never be able (or want!) to do."
To run a distance further than a 5k!
Talk a little bit about 3W Races:
"As an athlete and small business owner, my time is limited in relation to training. However, with proper time management, I'm getting runs in with my dog, riding in my basement, and swimming when I can. When something is important, you find a way to get the job done. Involvement with 3W allows me to train while feeding into a bigger picture. At the end of the day, it's about relationships, and I can't see a better way to cultivate that than by being a part of a team with the same vision."
Stephanie's Race Goals:
Complete an ultra marathon, and become more involved in the local racing community.
What does the 3W Motto mean to you?
"I realized I don’t have to run the fastest pace marathon, I don’t need to be the most spectacular runner, I don’t need to be the most famous runner, I just want running to be a fun passion of mine. I just need fit running in when I can, with what I have and I know running will always be a passion of mine."
To run a sub 3 hour marathon
Why would you like to be a 3W Ambassador?

makes it challenging."
How are you "Doing What You Can?
"I like to inspire others and find motivation in others, and encouraging them to push themselves. I have been working with quite a few people to help them lose weight and adopt a healthier lifestyle."
What does the 3W Motto mean to Nick?
"I think of helping an elderly woman lift up a heavy container of milk at Costco,
or going over to my brothers house to feed his cat while him and his wife are on vacation. The feeling of helping others and helping them
feel comfortable and safe is the ultimate feeling."
