Sean Astin to narrate "A Long Run"

According to a post on Giraffe Music Productions Facebook page, Sean Astin has recorded the narration for "A Long Run," a documentary about runner Bob Anderson's quest to run 50 races in one year.

Sean first met Bob Anderson at the Double Road Race in Indianapolis last month. They worked together just a few days ago:

Ran three miles with Michael this morning in North Hollywood. Then we met up with Sean Astin, who is going to be in our movie A Long Run and we ran 1.6 miles. Spent 3 hours with Sean.

"A Long Run" is a full-length documentary movie in the making.  The story follows Bob Anderson, founder of Runner's World, as he celebrates 50 years of running by racing 50 races in 2012.  His goal is to average under 7 minutes per mile for at least 350 miles.  "The challenge itself is not that amazing.  However, to race 5k to the half marathon each weekend at an average pace of under 7 minutes per mile makes it more of a challenge.  Equally challening is that 64-year-old Bob Anderson works full time as the CEO and chief photographer of the Ujena Swimwear Company he founded in 1984," says director Michael Anderson. Read more at
