โ€œI honestly never thought that I would be a runner. The only reason I joined SRLA was because I heard my brother wanted to join, and I never really had anything to do.

I didn’t really think much about it the first weeks because they were just tryouts. I always thought that if I got in I would continue running, but if I didn’t I wouldn’t really care.

But soon I actually started to like running, and so that’s when I realized I would need to take things more seriously if I wanted to join, and to enjoy more of what SRLA had to offer.

I hope I can continue to run more marathons or just races overall as I grow older, because now I have discovered a new passion.

But even though it was fun most of the time, I also struggled waking up early on Saturdays and on race days, having sore feet. and wanting to just give up sometimes, but I’m glad I didn’t because it was really worth it.โ€

    Something I didn’t know about was that Isabel didn’t really care about running before she actually got on the team.
