Who doesn't love a race shirt!?
One of my favorite things about the 5k process is developing a t-shirt that will be worn for a long time after the run is over.
This year I've enlisted the help of a dear friend here in Los Angeles.
Meet, Shaun Cashman.
Shaun is not only a husband to one of my loveliest friends and father to two fantastic little girls, he's an Annie and Emmy award nominated and winning director/producer and animator.
Actually, if I'm being honest, Shaun is probably one of the best artist's I personally know. He has sitting on his mantle at home, two Emmy's...one for Best Direction of Animation and Best Producer In Animation. He's also the lucky owner of an Annie Award for best directing in animation.
People, one of his FIRST jobs in the industry was for The Simpsons.
The. Simpsons. He hand drew Homer and the family for 11 years for FOX.
He's also animated and/or directed for King of The Hill, A Charlie Brown Special, A Winnie The Pooh Film, The Penguins of Madagascar, Fanboy & Chum Chum and currently is working on Randy Cunningham: 9th Grade Ninja on Disney Channel. He's done more than that though...check him out on IMDB.
I'm so excited to tell you that Mr. Shaun Cashman is hand drawing the front of our Rose Run T's this year! *squeal*
I gave him an idea that I thought of last year and sent him on his merry way of Drawing Board Land.
In the photo above, Shaun and I are going over final design for the shirt. I can't wait to see the finished product.
I am so thankful to have so many amazing people in my life that support The Rose Run. We couldn't do this without the friends, families and complete strangers volunteering their time, donating their money, participating, volunteering and like Shaun, lending me his talents.
Thank you Shaun. I'm excited to see your tshirt design on Rose Runners and walkers for years to come!
The moral of this post? If you want to make sure you get a one of a kind t-shirt for this year's Rose Run, then please...pre-register! You can do that by clicking HERE.

We are so happy to announce our partnership with Voskos Greek Yogurt! I remember having a cup of Voskos for the first time several years ago at a run here in Burbank. I had never had Greek Yogurt before, but I was hooked.
Voskos Greek Yogurt, founded in 2005, is the very first manufacturer and distributor of Greek Yogurt in the US and continues to be the leader and first company to offer Non-Fat, Low-Fat and Original in Plain and Flavored Greek Yogurt. Voskos takes a leadership position in educating consumers the nutritional benefits of Greek Yogurt and advocates eating Greek Yogurt daily as part of a healthy, balanced diet.
Adding greek yogurt to your daily diet is a great idea for overall health and even weight loss...not to mention the fantastic amount of protein it has for a post Rose Run trot! Read more here...

From The Crowd...
"The race this year was my first 5K since high school (26 years ago!). I had a great time and really enjoyed being in Petersburg. It felt great to run a race again (except the humidity killed in the third mile! :) ) I was happy to help support the charities in honor of Rose and my father who passed away from Cancer 7 years ago. I will be back next year!" -Michael Koczorowski
The Rose Run was started in 2009 by the family of Rose Marie Hunt. Rose lost her battle with breast cancer at the age of 54, and since then, her hometown and strangers across the country have come together to raise over $50,000 in her name for various charities and non-profits including, The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, The University of Michigan Cancer Center and The Petersburg/Summerfield volunteer fire department.
