Golden Gate Park 10k

Endorphin Dude's tough guy Asian mafia gangsta fraternal twin bro:

Another 10k in the books.  I managed to improve my time by 10 minutes from last weekend's 6.2 miler.  This is a huge win for me, especially after being sidelined for two weeks with the injury.  I have a local trail marathon next weekend, and having these two back to back 10k's under my belt gives me a boost of confidence.  I don't think that I would be able to jump into a marathon cold turkey!  The only bummer about this race is that my glasses flew off my face at mile 4 and broke. That's fine, at least it's the glasses and not the foot that's broken!

On a completely different note, has anyone ever wondered what Endorphin Dude does when he's not running?  Well, let me tell you!  I formed a competitive film making team called It Donned On Me five years ago.  What we do is compete in timed film making competitions, such as the 48 Hour Film Project, where we have to write, shoot, edit, and produce a short film under a tight deadline.  Last weekend, It Donned On Me produced our 19th film together for the Go Green 48 Hour Film Project.  Our lead actor bailed at the last minute and yours truly had to step in to play the lead.  Check out "Double Down" here.

So, if you ever wondered what Endorphin Dude is doing when he's not running, now you know!  By the way, Double Down took the award for Best Acting as well as runner up for Best Picture.  Not bad, if I do say so myself.
