Lori: guess what, did I tell you I signed up for a marathon?
Lori: yeah, the Pasadena Marathon.
Me: huh? There’s a Pasadena Marathon?
Lori: it’s new.
Me: oh. So you’re gonna run a marathon? You’ll be the first Mosqueda since tío Johnny. Cool!
Lori: yeah, I’ve been wanting to do it since I saw the pictures of tío Johnny crossing the finish line in the LA Marathon years ago. He can’t run anymore, but I can.
Me: [sad face] I know.
Lori: I started training today, we just ran a little mile. The next Saturdays we’ll run more.
Me: when is it?
Lori: in November. Will you go and cheer for me on the route?
Me: of course! I’ll make a sign saying, “Run, GP! Run!”
Me: are you doing it on your own?
Lori: no, my friend and I signed up with the American Stroke Association. I have to fundraise.
Me: you should have no problem with that, you know lots of people. I’m sure all the people you bake cookies and cakes for owe you a buck or two.
Lori: I hope.
Me: I’m proud of you. You’re such a do-gooder. First you cut off your hair for sick kids, now this.

Yeah for your sister! I didn’t know there was a pasadena marathon either! Maybe we’ll go see her cross the finish line.
Big hearts must ‘run’ in the Mosqueda family.
