Have you ever seen the movie Rocky? I tell ya, the movie inspires enough as it is, but the music makes it just that much more. I chose this song for Musical Monday because my sweet hubby, Charlie, completed a half iron man on Sunday.

Five hours and eleven minutes.

That’s a 1.2-mile swim, 56-mile bike, then a 13.1-mile run.

YIKES.

He inspires me just as he is, but his dedication to good health and healthy competition inspires me that much more. So, I thought this song fitting for Musical Monday.

MUSICAL MONDAYS–sports edition

Welcome to sports week. I thought it appropriate to dedicate this week’s blog posts to sports, considering we just celebrated the Super Bowl on Sunday.

***

Musical Mondays is about our favorite music. If you’re a writer, does it inspire your creativity? Cure writer’s block? If you’re not a writer, what do your favorite songs do for you?

***

What better song to celebrate sports week with than:  Gonna Fly Now, by Bill Conti.

Ok, yeah, the song without the video wouldn’t be that motivational, right? But, you have to admit, the video PLUS the music is pretty amazing.

I mean, we all remember him running up the steps then turning and raising fisted hands into the air in celebration, right? Oh my goodness. Or how ’bout the part where he’s punching frozen meat? Or the one handed push ups.  I love those parts.

Ok, this song just pumps me up. Any songs out there that do that for you?
