As a local Savannah gal, Anna is a mom, wife, sister, aunt, teacher, and student.

Sticking to her motto, she says “Lace up, and just put one foot in front of the other!”
Josh is a proud husband of 18 years and father of five- three boys and twin girls. He slowly started to change his pace when he joined the local F3 Coastal Empire men’s group. Then he drastically changed his pace when his son double-dog-dared him to get moving in November 2019. He's been on a runstreak ever since! He's excited to be a part of Savnanah’s running community and can’t wait to be an ambassador for the Savannah Bridge Run!
