Moravian College Hall of Fame

Friday night was a wonderful night for our family.  My sister {Tara} was inducted into the Moravian College Hall of Fame for her accomplishments in cross-country and track while attending the school in the mid-late 90's. 

Tara's forte was cross-country in the fall and the longer distances on the track ranging from the 3,000 - 10,000 meters.  She was a several time Division III NCAA All-American, most notably finishing 3rd in the 3,000 meter run on the track and 7th overall in cross-country. 

Always the running supporters, my parents were very proud!  

Payton, here with my nephew, was so excited to be a part of the evening.  She told me that one day she wanted to be in the Hall of Fame too. 

Both Bobby T, our longtime friend, and I nominated Tara for this special honor.  Bob ran for Moravian with us and now is a very successful XC coach at Freedom, our high school alma mater.    

After the ceremony, we all posed for a few random photos...

Fred was very happy for Tara since he also was involved in Moravian athletics.  He is a year ahead of me in school and played baseball for the Hounds back in the mid-90's. 

Fellow teammate, Pat Egan, flew in from Ohio for the occasion.  Pat used to be a great runner on the men's side. 

Because two former runners, plus the 1989 men's track & field team were inducted this year, Jesse put his assistant coach in charge of the runners at the XC Regional meet and headed back to Bethlehem to show his support. 

The next day, the inductees were honored at halftime of the football game so I took Tara over for that event. 

Amos, the greyhound!

Proud sis!!

Patrick met us at the game and then we headed across the street for a celebratory beverage... 

It was such a fun weekend and Tara is well-deserving of this prestigious honor! 

As for my running, I did an easy four miles on Saturday and then came back with a 10-miler on Sunday with Jesse.  I ran between 7:30 - 7:40 for a total time of 1:16 and the second five was quicker than the first.  

Hopefully this week {with the warmer temperatures early in the week} I can get some good runs in before the Thanksgiving holiday.  Enjoy your Monday!
