@bailey_k just finished very first 25K trail race and it's hard to say who's more excited for her - me or Hatchi. You've been working really hard for this Kaitlin, and I'm so proud of you!! 💛

A Steelhead Quest is available online!! Link to full film in my bio.
Working on this film for the past year goes down as one of the most fun, inspiring, eye opening experiences for me, and I can't thank Terry Myers enough for allowing me into her life and telling this personal story. I am a very lucky lady because I got to collaborate with the likes of @beccaskinner and @mrschelseajackson in piecing this film together, and I am forever grateful that they each said "YES" when I asked them to join me.
None of this would be possible without the support of our amazing sponsors and partners who believed in this story as much as I did - @rei, @scientificanglers, @troutunlimited, @orvis, @winstonrods, @flyfishingfilmtour, and @costasunglasses - From the bottom of my heart, thank you!

What is The Quest? A fun goal Terry set for herself in 2015 - trying to catch a wild steelhead on a different NW river each month of the year.

Once upon a time, the idea of catching a wild steelhead on a different river every month of the year was a reasonable thought. But these days, steelhead runs are on the decline. Spending the past year with Terry and Jerry has really reinforced the need to protect the places where we play.

This is certainly the first time a film of mine has been programmed with Psycho 😆
Don't miss out - you can find a link to tickets in my bio. However, if you want to see Psycho, that link won't do you much good 😉
Terry and Jerry's passion for getting out in the river will make a steelhead angler out of anyone! Mark your calendars - full film will be available online at @rei on MAY 16th!! In Seattle? Join us for the premiere on the 15th at @centralcinema. Link to tickets in my bio.

And the best running tights go to..... @themirnavator !!! Mirna just hit her half way mark in a 12 hour race. The skies have opened and it's dumping, but she's still nothing but smiles! #RunMirnaRun @rei @merrelloutside #ForceofNature #merrelloutside #optoutside #onproduction
On my way to Georgia to start production on a film about this powerhouse - @themirnavator !!! Mirna's running a 50K this weekend, and I'm so excited to be there cheering her on! We'll be following Mirna all summer as she trains for the @transrockiesevents trail run race, and will release the film in September with @rei - can't wait to share this inspiring story with you! #ForceofNature #optoutside #merrelloutside #RunMirnaRun
Good morning!!! 🌄
Hope your day is filled with mountains and high fives!

Inspired by some of my favorite Earth Lovin Ladies, @captainlizclark and @leabrassy, @bailey_k and I started the Plastic Swear Jar Challenge on Saturday. That's seven days of keeping track of your single use plastic intake - bags, packaging, straws, cutlery, etc. Every time a piece of single use plastic works it's way into our lives, we put a dollar in the "plastic swear jar" and at the end, we'll donate it to the @changingtidesfoundation. If there's one thing I've learned thus far, it's that I'm going to need to pull out more cash! We're pretty mindful of it already, but it's been a good check in to see what still slips in. For example, gluten free bread !! It's packaged in plastic, then wrapped in another plastic bag. We baked that delicious loaf you see on the counter to try to cut down on unnecessary plastic in our home. Hoping that we can keep up on that behavior change because it's mmm mmm tasty!!

Holy smokes! It's been FOUR YEARS since heading to Kabul for our first production of @afghancycles! This film has taken many twists and turns, more than I can convey in an Instagram post - but I will say that what I am most grateful for is that @outlive.the.bastards said YES when I asked her to join me as a co-director on the film. We had an amazing crew on that initial trip, including @sgalpin74, @claudialopezphoto, @jaymemoye, and Ky Hunter - and we've had more amazing people join us since then, but I'm not sure I would have had the guts to take on the challenge of making the film if Whitney hadn't believed in it as much as I did. As we start seeing that twinkle of light at the end of the tunnel that is post production on the film, I am grateful to her for helping me kick things off. THANK YOU WHITNEY!!!

Today I'm thinking about my dear friends @masomah.alizada and her sister Zahra who were granted asylum into France. They have allowed me to follow them with my camera on and off for a few years for @afghancycles and their family has welcomed me into their home more times than I can count. Now I can say "thank you" and return the kindness by offering support as they make their move west. If you're able, please consider joining me and contributing to this fundraiser - money will go directly to the Alizada family for moving and relocation expenses Thank you!

*I feel it is important to add that the Alizada family are among the (very few) lucky ones. Unlike many others, their trip will be safe and legal, but that doesn't make it any less significant. Families are being forced to leave their homes, communities, and everything and everyone that they know to be "home." It is important to remember that it is not those that leave that we should be wary of, it's those who push them to leave because of the violence they inflict against innocent civilians.
Today's inspiration to get out on a trail run - @themirnavator !! She's training for the biggest run of her life this summer, and it's inspired me to get me ass in gear and log some miles in solidarity! Go Mirna go!! @rei #trailrun #runhappy
Edit -> Belly Rubs -> Repeat
Thanks for catching reality of the home office @bailey_k
