Inspiring stuff: an awe-inspiring tale of guts, passion and pig-headed refusal to surrender. --Richard Askwith, Author of Feet in the Clouds.
In Mud, Sweat, and Tears, O Sullivan recounts the journey that introduced her to adventure racing. What began with a short mountain run quickly evolved into an audacious quest to master mountain biking, kayaking, fell running, and navigation. In a humble and candid voice, O Sullivan combines the thrill of adventure with the triumph of self-discovery. --Trail Run Spain
