Ginger Howellginger.b.howell@gmail.com@gingerhowellracingThe highlight of 2018 was earning my pro card at the Philadelphia Escape Triathlon, by being the 2nd amateur female! I then placed 4th in the Boston Triathlon, and won the Whaling City Triathlon. I also competed in the Augusta 70.3 and the Waco 70.3, as well as qualifying for the Boston Marathon.7x Ironman finisher, including the Ironman World Championship in 2016 and 2017 (as an age grouper). I also competed at Age Group Worlds in 2013, and have run marathons on four continents, including Antarctica. This is my first full season competing as a pro!N+1 Cyclery, Bianchi, Honey Stinger, and BlueSeventyBefore becoming a professional triathlete, I taught circus classes for eight years. I did balance skills, like stilt walking a wire walking, and aerial skills, including fabrics and aerial hoop.This will be my first time!I've heard a lot of good things about the race and venue! Also, we have family friends who moved to the area, so we will get to see them as part of the same trip. It's a win win!Two weeks before St Anthony's, I will be running the Boston Marathon - alongside my mom! She ran her first marathon at age 60, and I'm really proud of her for qualifying for Boston last year. I hope that I am still doing all of this when I am her age!https://drive.google.com/open?id=1vYK1COVEtF0zwr5pk8JlM5AuqMwyPJUChttps://drive.google.com/open?id=1gwzZtK8MdKl2vHycq-q8MnN9Jyb6pqRX

This is my first race at St. Anthony’s and first season as a pro. I got a late start at age 38!Wanted to try a new race and something outside of my comfort zone. I usually am stronger at the longer distance, so this should be a good challenge!I am sincerely honored to be lining up in the pro field at such an iconic race. Can’t think of a better way to start the season!https://drive.google.com/open?id=11bdkKzKiI0A33lZoEW5VHeVJVmg_gHDAhttps://drive.google.com/open?id=1pbK1feeihyhQS5c6wQrmuhOD33U3y_Ch
