Two Purdue professors run through life together

Posted: Friday, November 8, 2013 10:00 am | Updated: 12:01 pm, Fri Nov 8, 2013.
The romance started in South Bend, Ind., and two professors of liberal arts have been running everywhere together ever since.

Thomas and Sarah Mustillo found themselves teaching at Purdue after meeting in South Bend. Sarah, an associate professor in sociology, and Thomas, an assistant professor in political science, were brought together by fate, they said, in an unassuming bar.

I saw him and asked my friends, ‘Who is he?’ Then he was gone. I was really disappointed I wasn’t going to meet this person,” said Sarah. “Then we all went to a second bar; he showed up, walked in, came right over and started talking to me. It’s like it was meant to be.”

After they both completed graduate school, the couple went on the job market together. Thomas said they were happy to find jobs together in Indiana.
Now that Thomas and Sarah are settled, their daily routine contains a lot of running — running after their three kids, running to campus and running for exercise.
