Let's meet Martin! 

Martin Farfan is the President at Cathedral High School in Los Angeles. We asked our favorite ice-breaker question and most appropriate for the theme, “How long have you been running?” Martin responds, “I've been running since my freshman year at Cathedral, 36 years ago when I went out for the Cross Country team.” Martin has now been coaching the cross country team at Cathedral since 1990. We don’t think he will need the training but when asked how he will be training, he stated that he will continue running with the Cathedral High School track distance runners, who he also coaches. Martin’s goal for the Los Angeles Marathon this year is to finish, and hopefully break a time of 4 hours and 15 minutes. Martin’s favorite movie including running is the Billy Mills story… “Running Brave”. When asked to retell of his fondest CEF memories, Martin claims that the 30th Anniversary dinner at the Rose Bowl is definitely up there. “I'm running for the CEF because without the scholarships that they provide, 245 Cathedral students wouldn't be able to attend our school.”
