    When driving home from Dover late late last night/early this morning. My sister and I put on some old 80's cd's to sing along too. Ended up listening to the Eurythmics and this song came on - Sisters are doing it for themselves! It was such a wonderful Thelma and Louise type moment, feeling totally liberated and powerful and it really made me think of all of us strong ladies (and men) who are making this journey on LL and doing it for ourselves. Inspirational songs really do help me on my way and remind me of why I am doing this. Have a read of the lyrics and congratulate yourselves on your achievements. I would also love to know if there are any songs that are really inspirational for you :)

    When I knew in my heart, that I was going to hit my goal in 2008, this song took on a new meaning....was always a wonderful song, but now it really hit home.

    Elton John - "SALVATION"

    "Salvation"

    I have to say my friends
    This road goes a long, long way
    And if we're going to find the end
    We're gonna need a helping hand

    I have to say my friends
    We're looking for a light ahead
    In the distance a candle burns
    Salvation keeps the hungry children fed

    It's gotta take a lot of salvation
    What we need are willing hands
    You must feel the sweat in your eyes
    You must understand salvation

    A chance to put the devil down
    Without the fear of hell
    Salvation spreads the gospel round
    And free you from yourself

    just sitting here waiting for my running mate and natasha beddingfield , unwritten came on , that has to be my song i think , i used to listen to it all the time when i was loosing and lost my weight , especially when running as it reminded me that we are not who we are today forever , we can change whenever we take iy upon ourselves , thus we are unwritten , soooooooo liberating when you think about it !!!
    on that note ali is here and im off to keep writing my new story ala a 6 mile run ;0O
