Let's meet Vanessa! 

Vanessa Poe is an English Teacher at Bishop Conaty Loretto High School and has been running most of her adult life, although she says she’s been slacking off a bit these past few years, we’re sure she’ll pick up right where she left off! CEF asked Vanessa if she had a “fun fact” that people may not know about her and she said, “I have taken myself to Europe twice!”  Vanessa says that her favorite movie that includes running is When Harry Met Sally! “When Harry runs to Sally at the end of the movie because he realizes that he wants to spend the rest of his life with her and he wants that to start right away. What’ I can’t help it… I'm a hopeless romantic!” Vanessa states that she will be using a running schedule that she used when she ran the Chicago marathon in 2011. “This will also include many runs at my favorite running places, The Rose Bowl in Pasadena and the beach!” CEF asked what her goal for this year’s LA Marathon is and Vanessa said, “Because I am 8 years older, er, um, wiser, than I was the last time I ran a marathon, my goal is to finish in the same amount of time.” Vanessa is running for CEF because about 70% of Bishop Conaty Loretto students receive funding through CEF and she says she wants to do her part. “I'm grateful for the Catholic education I received as a child, I send my own kids to Catholic school, and I want to make Catholic education possible for anyone who wishes to attend.” Go Vanessa!
