About Me

Hi y’all!  My name is Lesley and this is my blog.  What started just as a running blog and more of a diary of training turned into a blog that covers a lot of what I like to do.  Whether it’s running, reading, soccer, hockey, movies, cooking, traveling, or Disney, y’all will find posts about it on here.

I was never a long distance runner and only came to the sport back in 2010.  I was involved in sports growing up, but running was always something I HAD to do or was FORCED to do.  It was punishment, and I never found running itself to be enjoyable.  Even after I graduated from college, I didn’t do long distance running.  I tried to do 2 to 3 miles at a time, but the commute and drama of a first job took over and running fell by the wayside.  I got out of shape and I hated being stressed all the time.

In 2009, I moved back to Texas, where I was born.  We moved around due to my parents going back to school and jobs, etc.  I lived in Tucson for 5 years, Wisconsin for 3 and Boston for almost 12 before I decided to make my way back to my home state, moving to Dallas.  It was here that I got back in shape, decided to do a runDisney 5k about a year and a half later, and the rest is history.  Even though my parents and their friends participated in runDisney for years before then, I didn’t try it out until late 2010.  I was hooked.  My first half was the Princess half in 2012, and I haven’t looked back.

This is my own corner of the internet and I hope you enjoy it!
