In Bump, Bike & Baby, Moire O’Sullivan charts her journey from happy, carefree mountain runner to reluctant, stay-at-home mother of two. With her sights set on winning Ireland’s National Adventure Racing Series, she manages to maintain her post-natal sanity, and slowly learns to become a loving and occasionally functioning mum.
Bridget had the pleasure of reading this book over the last few days.
"I really enjoyed the book. The honest account of how Moire dealt with coming to terms with becoming a reluctant mum is extremely brave. For any women who are involved in sports or other activities which may not be conducive to being a mother then this is a great read. Brutally honest.... it seems Moire says things that many women experience but may not be brave enough to say. She is true to herself throughout.
We had the pleasure of having Moire compete at the Gaelforce events over the years but not only compete, Moire went on to win Gaelforce West in 2014....she had an extra challenge that day and I could feel her pain reading her account of the day - razor blades is what I would compare it to.
Moire is a terrific ambassador for adventure racing and sports in general.
We wish you well with the book....it's a terrific read"
