We present a continuum determination of a_mu^SIB, the strong isospin-breaking contribution to a_mu, the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon, using ChPT and the formulation of a_mu as a weighted integral of the electromagnetic current two-point function over Euclidean Q^2. Flavor-breaking hadronic tau decay sum rules are shown to provide a determination of a key higher-order chiral LEC encoding numerically important resonance region contributions. Implications of the structure of the result for the lattice determination of a_mu^SIB are also discussed.
