The pooch & I

My name is Leslie and I am a 27-year-old event manager that loves to cook, run and just about anything outdoors. I have an awesome family, fun friends, a cute boyfriend, Jeff, and an energetic dog, Freddie Mercury. My interest in cooking started a few years ago when I wanted to eat at home more often to save money, and save calories. Over the last year and a half that interest has grown into a love! I really enjoy trying new recipes and using friends and family as guinea pigs. I like to put my own spin on recipes I come across, whether that means altering ingredients to make something a bit healthier, or adding some spices to heat a dish up.

The boyfriend & I ❤

I started running a little over a year ago when I decided to run a 1/2 marathon with a good friend. We ran our first 1/2 together in February 2011 at the Huntington Beach Surf City, and I loved it! I took a hiatus to focus on some strength training, but recently became re-dedicated to running. I’m hoping to run my first full marathon in 2012 and am looking forward to the training.
