I'm starting to get really stoked about the Olympics. The last time I was into the games was 1996. I didn't watch them at all in 2000 and 2004. This year I've actually got favorites that I'm pulling for.
One of my idols right now is Anthony Famiglietti, who'll be representing the U.S. in the steeplechase. He's just completely bad ass and totally cool.
Check out his website. Be sure to click on the "RUN LIKE HELL" link and watch the trailers for his movie.
If that doesn't get you fired up for your afternoon run, I don't know what will.
