"One of greatest adventure stories I ever heard involves a meth addict, an exotic dancer, a Goth hairdresser, and a suicidal jailbird, and the amazing transformation that combined all of them into the joyful, iron-tough athlete known as the "Dirt Diva." I’d heard bits of the Dirt Diva legend for years, but until this book, I never knew her story was so painful, tragic, and heroic. This is a story you’ll love and never forget." —Christopher McDougall, author of bestselling Born to Run> and Natural Born Heroes

Her passion and love for running, others, and her dear dog TruMan shines through every day. She shows us what’s possible with a strong will and a heart of gold! I thank her for sharing her life and journey with us and being an exemplary role model. She epitomizes perseverance and is the one-of-a-kind Dirt Diva." —Camille Heron
"[Catra] she bares her soul to the reader. She allows us an inside look at the struggles she had not only with addiction but with loss of life and love. Her story is truly gripping." -Vegan Cable Guy
