The Gwinnett Runners in the Relay for Life is a group of runners in Gwinnett County who meet up every other Saturday at 12:00 PM at Graves Park to run together in preparation for the Relay for Life in May. Some of us also participate in other runs and relays for various causes, but we always come together to participate in that one.
Running is a very solitary activity, but it doesn’t have to be. You can just as easily find a new group of friends to run with, and running becomes easier when you have friends cheering you on.
My name is Kristina Edwards, and I started this group. I have been running in the Gwinnett Relay for Life for five years, but I just started this group last year, and the 2018 relay was my most successful relay ever. I think that is because of the friends that I have made in this group. They have really challenged me to be the best runner that I can be.
