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!
