    Unfortunately I found the book to be poorly written which, for me, took away it s impact The fact that Catra was abused as a child was almost treated as a by the way which appeared out of the blue rather than being treated as an important and devastating stage in her life.Disappointing book

    This was heavy book flashbacks were too many sometimes But it did give you narrative on how she started running challenges faced.

  3. Customer Customer says:

    Incredibly inspiring and amazing woman But, the grammar in this book is awful and the spelling is worse I ve seen Catra being interviewed on You Tube and she is a very well spoken woman So, disappointing to pay 26 for a book that s been badly edited and published Otherwise great read.

  4. Dan Dan says:

  5. Truth Devour Truth Devour says:

    Reading this book had me feeling total respect for the human bodies desire to heal Catra was open in her depiction of self abusive behaviour that saw her traverse extremes of heroin drug addiction to anorexia and eventually across to ultra running.None of those options are particularly easy life paths Catra s transformation to ultra running, her description of the Ultra community and achievements is a wonderful credit to her determination to make better choices.

    But I found it to be very jumpy with the timeline.
