Hi! My name is Isabel (nickname), and I am passionate about all things running-related! I’ve been running since middle school and off and on throughout college. I finally made up my mind after giving birth in April 2011 to take my running to the next level. After taking several months off to recuperate from delivery-related complications, I’ve dedicated myself to becoming the best that I can possibly become! Everyday is a blessing, a gift, and I believe you should live it to the fullest! I thank my family, my friends, Brooks, my fellow Brooks IDers, and GU for giving me the courage and motivation to the go the extra mile and to get back up again after I fall.
