Ginger Howell is a triathele. She's also a Gillian's Island character.
Ginger is working towards a goal of running a marathon on all seven continents. So far, she has completed ones on North and South America, Europe, and Antarctica! In keeping with her Gilligan's Island themed name, all of Ginger's international marathons have been on islands: Iceland (Europe), Easter Island (technically, that counts as South America), and King George Island (Antarctica).
Ginger got interested in running during college - she was one of those Wellesley girls screaming at the half-way point of Boston! She has run the Boston Marathon the last five years and hopes to do it again in 2014.
In her spare time, Ginger is also a circus performer, and specializes in performing aerial hoop and fabrics while balancing a wine glass on her head. She can also walk a tight wire, spin fire, and hang by her hair. She is definitely someone you should keep an eye out for in Fanueil Hall!
