Runner Ishibe Quietly Racks Up Victories

By Rich McManus

Epidemiologist Dr. Naoko Ishibe is also an elite runner.

Mention the word "runner" in Washington and you are likely to conjure political images, particularly in an election year. But one of the very best runners in the city has a deliberately low profile, letting her feet do all the talking. Though she is gradually gaining a reputation as a winner — she was named Washington Runner of the Year in 1999 and last month was the first female finisher in the Army 10-Miler — Dr. Naoko Ishibe is probably better known around NIH as the compact woman on the seventh floor of Executive Plaza South whose cubicle across from the kitchenette provides an almost constant invitation to snack.
