When was the last time you experienced goosebumps? The kind of GPs that present themselves when you see something spectacular unfold. This weekend Anne and I had the opportunity to experience cable TV (we are the only house in Highland Creek without cable - likely) and watch some incredible swimming.

Enter 19 year old Sun Yang of China in the 1500 m Freestyle event at the 2011 FINA World Championships. It was incredible to watch this guy work the water. His efficiency was unmatched and his closing 100 m was absolutley spectacular.

Most find the 100 to 200 m events to create the most excitement, but the last 50 to 100 meters were simply magical. Take a look at this footage. I love the Aussie accent here and his raw enthusiasm!

I just watched this short clip and got the chillies once again.

I certainly hope you got some GPs as a result of watching this giant fly through the water.

Do something today that makes your hair stand on end, your heart to race, and makes you jump around like a 3 year old on Christmas morning!

Taste adreneline friends,
