About

Every day we at My Dad Runs believe there is a choice we can make and a major component is motivation. For us here is simple, the ability to run with or for our children.

When you are getting to go on business trip pack our shirt. Replace your standard solid color running T and wear something with a purpose.

Our sweatshirt will become your favorite for those relaxing hours of the day. After a run, at a coffee shop, at your kids sporting events or at the neighborhood BBQ. Be proud to be a running dad! 

The T-Shirt 

This is a performance shirt and is made for running day in and day out. I have run in over 17 marathons and countless 5K & 10K’s and now how much good material means while you are out there in the elements. Our performance shirt is made of the following:

· Dri-Mesh double-layer construction 

· 3.8-ounce light

· Tag-free label

· Set-in sleeves

· Side vents

Please note that the t-shirt and sweatshirt in all photos are my samples. 

 The Sweatshirt 

Our hope for our sweatshirt is that you never want to take it off! Not only because it is motivating you but because it is sooo comfortable. Our sweatshirt is made of the following:

· Colorfast and resists shrinkage

· 9-ounce light

· Tag-free label

· Fully coverseamed

I have been running for 25 years now, doing so while college and in marathons, triathlons and ultra-marathons. In any race or workout as a runner you want to give all you can.

What I believe the meaning of “give all you can” has changed after becoming a father. Downtime is limited but staying in shape is very important to me. Even if it is 30 minutes before a work dinner, I will run. If I am in overseas for work & jet-lagged, I will run. If my daughter is up at 5 am and wanting to go with daddy, I will run with her. 

My Dad Runs mission is to become a community of running dads that can share their motivation for running with their children. If you run mile, 10 miles or 20 miles it doesn’t matter. Giving all you can is all that matters no matter how long you run. 

To ensure we can provide the highest quality clothing and at the best price for you the backers, bulk ordering is a must with our suppliers. 

Ordering in bulk and getting priority support from our screen printers and clothing manufactures we can ensure the following:

· Fulfillment time will be shorter

· Colors will be as vibrant as possible

· Materials will be shrink resistant 

 ·Having the ability to produce multiple high quality logos  

If We Raise $5,000 

My Mom Runs will be launched. Fully trademarked slogan and logo. 

 If We Raise $10,000

Running Hats will be launched. Black moisture-wicking performance running hats will be created and by ready to order on our website. Nylon/cotton twill with hook and loop closure. (Below is just a concept) 

We want to continue to update all our backers on all facets of the company. Here’s how you can stay in the loop regarding future product concepts, promotions & running events.

Risks and challenges

I know running and its in my blood. However, I am undertaking a new venture with this clothing line. To get the highest clothing and print we will need a fan base in order to achieve this. We need people like you who are willing to order products online and stay connected with a brand they believe in. We also need your help to spread the message of our company. I believe in the company and in the message and thank you in advance for your support. Be inspired everyday to run....Give All You Can.
