sunday song – “i run for life” (or walk in NEDA walks)

Soooo the weekend is almost done and now since I am a working girl it really does make a difference whether or not it’s a weekend. Weird but good. I work a lot of hours tomorrow (my boss messed up my schedule again so we’ll see how many I really end up working). It’s a good thing I take my anxiety meds because this whole schedule thing makes me very anxious. Anyways, onto the Sunday song. I chose the song “I Run for Life” by Melissa Etheridge because I know some NEDA (Nation Eating Disorder Association) walks have gone on. A few of my friends joined in on the walks to support friends, themselves and loved ones who suffer from eating disorders. So, I thought this song was appropriate even though it was written to honor breast cancer survivors I feel it also honors my friends who walked for those who could not or did not have the opportunity available. Also, on a side note Oprah (oooohhh aaahhhh) sent the episode in which Melissa Etheridge sings this song on her show to CFC. So the song does hold some memories of the time I spent there. Enjoy your daily dose of country music. 🙂
