The Cooking Runner


Hi! I am Trina…a runner, a military wife, a cook, a mom to two dogs and a kitty, and a self proclaimed “Do it yourself-er”!

I cook therefore I  run! I have been a runner since I was a senior in high school and a cook even longer. I grew up in Chicago and moved to one of the most beautiful places in the US, the western shore of Lake Michigan. I work with my husbands family on their farm/vineyard.

We grow grapes, apples, pears, plums, and various other crops, and sell vineyard and tasting room signage. We are currently perfecting our wine and hard cider, it is a long process to get it just right!  I am also the office manager at an all women law firm. I am also a military wife. My husband has been in the military for over 20 years, and we have been through two of his three deployments together.

In my spare time I volunteer at AUCADO, the most amazing rescue for Aussie cattle dogs.

Somewhere between working, making wine and cider, being a wife, and walking dogs, I find time to run with my own two fur-children. Sasha and Sonny are rescued Australian Cattle Dogs…the smartest dogs alive! (ok, so I maybe biased) We rescued Sonny from the local animal shelter, and Sasha came from AUCADO.

Thanks for visiting! I hope you enjoy!
