I can only echo the previous reviews. Moire's journey should be a lesson to all. Nothing is out of reach if you knuckle down and apply yourself. The joy of hill running comes through loud and clear and on reading it one would want to throw on the running gear and get out there. Highly recommended, the book and the sport.

This is a must read for any hill runner/adventure sport enthusiast. To read a first hand account of her journey from complete novice Leinster Leaguer to one of mountain running and orienteering's finest athletes is truly eye opening. If you're lucky, many of her experiences in the book will seem familiar to you. If not, you'll gain the inspiration to go rectify that situation ;-) I don't think I've ever seen the highs, lows, freedoms, disappointments and exhilirating surprises of long distance navigational events described so eloquently.

This is one of the best books I have read in a long time. A truely inspirational story of mountain running and extreme adventure. I was riveted by the challenge the author set for herself and her 2 year committment to achieving her goal. Something every athlete and adventurer should read before they die.
