What do you remember from college? I was on my alma mater’s campus today during the annual parade of champions marching band competition, but I was more focused on what I remember from my days at the school – D-Hall. I worked in food services throughout my entire college career and have some great memories – from farm parties, bowling leagues and overnight camping trips. What a blast! I wanted to capture a few images of the building I called “my office” before it’s demolished and replaced by a more up-to-date facility next year. Check out this page for an image of the construction of D-Hall.
So now I have the freakin’ “Memories” song going through my head because I was trying to think of something profound to write about memories! Ah well.
I stumbled across a box today that was just stuffed in a closet. It had been there for quite some time and I’d acknowledged it for several years and questioned what was in it, but never actually looked inside. Curiosity got the better of me today and I’m glad it did. What I found represents about a decade’s worth of memories in my racing “career.” These awards include Commonwealth State Games of Virginia, Duathlon and Triathlon series in Maryland, Virginia Criterium Championships and countless memories. Everybody should be so lucky to find a similar box of memories. Good times…
