Get That Ginger!

by

It happened at the Festival of Champions race in Belfast.  It was raining and the entire course was muddy.  People were falling everywhere.  Frank Schweizer was running in the freshman boys’ race, against at least 200 other runners.  Throughout the entire thing he was holding off two runners behind him.  “As we reached the last uphill one of them whispered, ‘Dude, get that ginger!’  and then the guy stuck out his foot and tried to trip me!  My feet got all twisted up, but I didn’t fall,” says Frank.  Unfortunately, the two runners were able to get ahead of Frank, but that wasn’t the end of the story.  When asked if he beat them or not his answer was, “Yeah I did!”  In the end their attempts were futile, and the GSA Cross-Country team prevailed.
