Photo finish: At last year’s Boston Marathon, Erin Strout ’97, a writer for Running Times magazine, was in a media center one block from the finish line when two bombs exploded. She recounted her experience in our July/Augsust 2013 issue: “There was … an instinct to start reporting, absorbing reactions, setting aside my panic.” This year, the scene at the finish was much more celebratory for Strout, who posed for a photo with (American!) victor, Meb Keflezighi, and posted it to Instagram with the caption: “Sorry. Sometimes you gotta take off your professional hat for a minute & be a fan.” 

She’s a morning person: It was announced yesterday that Good Morning America lifestyles anchor Lara Spencer ’91 has been promoted to co-host. Spencer nabbed the anchor spot in 2011, and since then, GMA has ousted Today as the No. 1 morning show in the country. Says ABC News chief James Goldston:”Lara is clearly an essential ingredient in the success we have enjoyed.” Way to go, Lara!

Instant mood boost: Everyone at Penn State Berks is happy — and we do mean everyone. A huge crew of students, faculty, staff, and a certain mascot all get down to the song of the moment in this fun YouTube video, created by Berks student Connor Hough.

From news to features, your daily dose of everything Penn State.

Remembering 9/11: The Penn State College Republicans are holding a memorial service today at noon on the Old Main patio. Rep. Kerry Benninghoff will speak.

Blurred Lines: Penn State hockey season tickets and tickets to January’s Jay-Z show at the BJC both went on sale yesterday, and the hilarity (er, two really long lines) ensued. At least this hockey fan (above) was treated to an impromptu line dance with hockey player Nate Jensen for her efforts. Surprisingly, Jay-Z was not around to offer his fans the same services.
