Let's meet Rosario!

Rosario Lara is a CEF parent that is looking to cross the finish line with us in March! Rosario has been running ever since she could remember, but says that she started taking it serious when she was in elementary school. All throughout her schooling, she states to have been very active. “I played basketball, soccer, softball, volleyball and I was in cross country. The last time I ran was about a year and a half ago… but nothing more than 5 miles!” Rosario says she finds joy in meditating, being outdoors and connecting with mother earth. “I am not afraid to try new things!” Rosario has made that very clear, especially by signing up to run her very first marathon! CEF asked what one of her fondest memories of CEF was, and she responded by saying, “One of my fondest moments with CEF was getting together with other parents during the on-site application process and talking about how helpful this program was for our children, and not to mention how wonderful and helpful the staff was.” Rosario’s favorite running movie is “Without Limits”. She really relates to a special quote that coach Bill Bowerman proclaimed regarding vanity. “Your belief that you have no talent is the ultimate vanity. If you have no talent then you have no limits, it's all an act of will. Your heart can probably pump more blood than anyone else's on earth, and that takes talent. The bones in your feet are so strong, it'd take a sledgehammer to break them. Be thankful for your limits, they're about as limitless as they get in this life.” CEF wanted to know how she would be training for the marathon and Rosario said “I will be organizing a better schedule to make time to be able to run every day,.. and still have time to work, and take care of my boys. I will eat less and prepare better breakfasts, so that I can run better.” She also mentioned that she will start stretching more often, begin learning how to control her breathing and attempt to be more focused throughout her training. “My goal for this race is to make it across the finish line. I want to be able to raise as much money as possible, so I can be part of helping other families the way that CEF has helped me with my kids.” – CEF Parent at Bishop Mora Salesian High School
