If you’re sad, cuddle with a dog and you’ll be ok. If you’re mad, cuddle with a dog and you’ll be ok. If you’re happy, cuddle with a dog and you’ll be happier. Lesson here? Always cuddle dogs. They make everything better. 💕 #ottotheadventurepup#cuddleallthedogs
Ahhhh such a good memory - lounging around with one of my best friends on the side of a volcano in that post-climb happy daze, resting the legs before ripping 3k+ more feet of glorious spring turns. Perfect days like this don’t happen all the time... but when they do, they’re made even better when you get to share them with friends. 🍻 #bestdayever#hoodrats
SO PROUD of my little doggo for completing his first Peterson Ridge Rumble 20-miler yesterday. HE DID SO WELL!!! He even got to take home a prize for 3rd place doggy!🥉 We had a blast rolling through the forest together on this awesome course. Racing with dogs is so fun, but boy does it have its own set of challenges - especially when your dog is on a leash! Not only do you have to worry about your own pace, endurance, exertion, nutrition, hydration, and stomach 💩 problems, you also have to worry about (aka stop for) your dog’s too! ...
#ottotheadventurepup has his first race this weekend - a 20 miler in Central Oregon! He’s been putting in lots of miles on the trails in the rain, sleet and snow, and making sure to carbo load with lots and lots of treats. Unsurprisingly, this lil border collie is not a huge fan of tapering. This doggo is ready to rumble! 👊🏼 PC: @mattrunstrails #timetoplay
THE HAPPIEST OF BIRTHDAYS to my husband / my everything / my adventure buddy / my ride-or-die @matthasenohr. 💕 Anyone who is lucky enough to know you will agree that you truly make the world a better, funnier, and weirder place... and I’m so happy you picked me to join you on this crazy, fun rollercoaster we call life! If 28 is anything like 27 was, it’s going to be a wildly awesome adventure! 🍻
Planned for a long run for Sunday. On the first trail, Otto heard some gunshots in the distance and got scared, so we unfortunately had to abort our plans and turn around after a few miles (second slide: a video of me carrying him down the trail because he was too scared to move). We found a new trail, slammed 3 tacos and a Baja Blast slushy on the way, and rallied for another ~24 muddy, sloppy miles (see my mud “tan line?”). Adventures rarely happen as planned, but much like life, ya just gotta roll with the punches and ...
Let’s be honest, I’ll never miss an opportunity to smother my dog with love during a run... even if that opportunity happens to fall right in the middle of a steep uphill climb 😉🤷🏼♀️ #ottotheadventurepup#timetoplay
My nose was chilled from the whipping wind, my ears were filled with the sound of my heartbeat, my hair was plastered to my forehead with sweat, and my heart was bursting at the seams with happiness as I stood next to my best friend and took it all in... no question - this is what it feels like to feel alive.

Another day of striving to achieve the whole “work hard play hard” concept. Getting out on the trails doesn’t always happen and it’s not always easy to balance with work...but on those special days it does happen, the miles are extra sweet. Gorge miles make me smile!

Happy place, happy face! Saturday’s climb up the Leuthold Couloir route on Mt Hood was probably the best day I’ve ever had on the mountain. Cruiser conditions on the ascent, and an amazing ski descent off the summit... all in the company of some of my favorite people in the whole world. THE TRIFECTA! Still having trouble wiping the smile off my face. I’ll be thinking about this day for a long time to come, that’s for sure. #timetoplay#happyplace
