There will ONLY be 1…first!

29 Dec

Hi! I’m Leslie. I was born and raised in Las Vegas. I’ve been residing in Portland, OR for the last 6 years. I’ve put more miles on my bike then on my car. I frequent the farmers markets. I recycle and compost. I try to be as sustainable as I can. I guess living in Oregon has made me SUPER GREEN!! I started running and doing triathlons. Some friends call me Cupcake. I’ve decided to start a blog to talk about all my favorite things in LIFE: rUNNING, tRIATHLONS, AND dESSERTS.

I’ve always been active. I started running for a “new” thing to do in 2006. I started out doing half-marathons and NEVER EVER thought I would do a marathon. In 2008 I decided I needed another “new” thing to do and joined a Team In Training to compete in an olympic triathlon. In 2009 I got “talked” into doing Ironman Canada. I barely knew what an Ironman entailed, I paid a ridiculous amount of money, signed up and finished. I have OFFICIALLY taken on the title of CRAZY! I have now done 23 half marathons, 6 marathons, 7 olympic triathlons, 7 long course/half ironman triathons, and YES 3 Ironman triathlons since 2006. I’ve done 5-15K running races and some sprint triathlons but I like the longer endurance events better.

I’ve always liked baking as well. My specialty is cakes and cookies. I like to always change it up. My friends don’t like that very much cause when I make something they like, they know I will not make it again. I do have a few favorites that I have made more than once. 🙂

I’ve been wanting to start a blog for a while now. I thought this would be the perfect time to start. The year is going to be 2013. I’ve got a lot of triathlon and running events planned for the year. One being Hood to Coast. The problem with that is, the team I got on because of Kara 2 years ago, didn’t get a slot this year. So the real motivation for starting the blog is to get on the NUUN Hood to Coast Team and their only requirement for applying is you have a running blog.

Here goes nothing…stayed tuned on aLL tHINGS rUNNING, tRIATHLON, aND dESSERT related!!

    I prefer the treadmill – I have one in my garage. I don’t use it but if I have to pick between a treadmill and running outside – I pick the treadmill. I LOVE YOUR BLOG – AND I LOVE YOU. xoxo Your mother!
