Lover of my progeny, wine, running, plant-based foods, and our lovely PNW. Order of the first two is at times negotiable. Portland, Ore.

This was the second time in one week that I ate my lunch on a mountain. With amazing views. And blue skies. And I LOVED IT. If I disappear forever, I’m definitely living my best life on a mountain somewhere, so don’t worry about me. ⛰ • • • #pnw #pnwonderland #gorge #hiking #hamiltonmountain #runnerlife #training #views #girlswhorun #beaconrockstatepark #outdoorlife #strongwomen

When your weekend is just one day long, I strongly recommend spending it somewhere that looks like this. ⛰ • • • #pnw #hiking #getoutside #weekend #oregon #saddlemountain #coast #runnerlife #training #beauty #nature #mountains #laundrycanwait

THIS. 🌊 Is there anything better than a beautiful day at the Oregon Coast with your people? If you had told me 5 years ago that my heart could be this peaceful and full, I would’ve called you a damn liar. Oh, and the wine. It’s not too bad either... • • • #pnw #oregon #coast #cannonbeach #family #love #myheart #wine #arneis #winelife #runnerlife #recovery #views #haystackrock #relaxation #vacation #lifeisajourney

Oh, the things I learned during the Red, White and Blues Race this morning. I struggled and cursed and made a mental list of everything I needed to do differently for my next race. And somehow, I even managed to finish. 1. Don’t get cocky. ALL races are challenging in some way. 🏃‍♀️ 2. Sleep is critical. 😴 3. Cross-training is magic. Don’t slack on it. 🚴‍♀️ 4. I’m quite fugly at 7:30 am....but starting lines still need to be documented. You know, for posterity. 😂 5. Rest days. Take them. Always, always take them before a race. 🧘‍♀️ 6. Running is as much a mental challenge as a physical one. 🤔 7. Beer at 8:30 am is absolutely a thing and I love it. 🍻 8. Having great friends who have literally run through hell with you, make every race a good one. 👧👧 9. Sometimes amazing things happen and you PR during a race you almost quit at mile 4. 👍🏻 10. We’re all a little stronger than we think. Never, ever give up (even if you have to walk a bit...). 💪🏻 • • • #running #runnerlife #race #runnersofinstagram #htc #10k #redwhiteandbluesrace #training #pnw #oregon #womenwhorun #fitness #fitwomen #strong #pr #brooksrunning #beer #fullsail #thingsithinkaboutwhenirun

Is there anything that Ponzi Vineyards doesn’t do beautifully? An amazing new event space, immaculate grounds, and flowers to match their delightful bubbles.

Celebrating a weekend of moving and dads and exhaustion with a late Sunday night dinner out back. Cheers to all of you fathers out there - both biological and non-biological - who are there for your people. We love you and are so very grateful for your presence on our lives. ❤️ • • • #fathersday #love #dad #weekend #outdoors #barbecue #wine #dinner #offspring #family #mypeople #pnw #portland #pdx #oregon #lifeisgood

It’s hard to believe that just a few weeks ago I was in Siena, Italy. The sights, sounds, smells, tastes, and joy of my time in Tuscany are forever imprinted on my soul. 🇮🇹 (📷 cred: @giorgio_cecere ) • • • #tbt #italy #tuscany #siena #piazzadelcampo #sightseeing #vacation #worklife #wine #sangiovese #winery #tripofalifetime

6 Steps to avoid cleaning your 🏠: 1. Look outside and notice the ☀️... 2. Remember that you have 🐶🐶 who really need to be walked. 3. Walk those pups. 4. Notice that your 🐶🐶 are thirsty. And so are you. 5. Happen to walk past a McMenamins with 🍺 for you and 💦 for the pups. 6. Settle in with said 🍺, some tots, mucho ☀️ and make plans for doing your cleaning NEXT weekend. 🤔 • • • #weekendvibes #priorities #sun #beer #tots #redriser #ira #mcmenamins #dogs #pitbull #lifestyle #relaxation #sunshine #pnw #pnwlife #pdx #oregon #cleaningisoverrated

A day off from work means a chance to be outdoors. Cheers to my second gorge hike this year and my first time at Hamilton Mountain. I will be back. 🌲🌸⛰ • • • #pnw #washington #hamiltonmountain #beaconrock #hiking #outdoors #fitness #gooutside #pnwonderland #columbiariver #gorge #pacificnorthwest #memorialdayweekend #summerisalmosthere #myfavoriteplacetobe

Our last dinner out in Montepulciano at the best restaurant we’ve enjoyed while here. Amazing people, food, and (clearly) wine. I’m not quite ready to leave this place.... • • • #wine #italy #italia #italianwine #tuscany #toscana #montepulciano #restaurant #diningout #winetasting #winery #winemaker #worklife #redwine #sangiovese #rosso #whoneedsaglass #ceraunavolta #tripofalifetime #canasfeastgoestoitaly

Day one in Cinque Terre and I took 100 pictures. Not a single one does this beautiful land justice. This photo was taken from the trail between Monterosso and Vernazza but it doesn’t even begin to capture how amazing this place is. ❤️🇮🇹 • • • #italy #cinqueterre #vernazza #monterosso #beautiful #sea #italianplaces #coastal #winelife #adventures #tripofalifetime

If you can’t be with your kids and mom for Mother’s Day, these cool cats are a great substitute. A lunch of Gnocchi, Pici, and Rosso di Montepulciano in Cortona, Italy isn’t too bad either.... • • • #italy #cortona #wine #worklife #winelife #winetasting #winemaker #italianwines #sangiovese #mothersday #lovemypeople
