Publisher Description

An intimate look at writing, running, and the incredible way they intersect, What I Talk About When I Talk About Running is an illuminating glimpse into the solitary passions of one of our greatest artists.

While training for the New York City Marathon, Haruki Murakami decided to keep a journal of his progress. The result is a memoir about his intertwined obsessions with running and writing, full of vivid recollections and insights, including the eureka moment when he decided to become a writer. By turns funny and sobering, playful and philosophical, here is a rich and revelatory work that elevates the human need for motion to an art form.

We ran similar lives

I started running at a younger age, but Mr. Murakami’s experience is nearly identical to my own. I ran for fitness, but found myself getting competitive and challenging myself more and more. I was running beside him as he described his experiences in this book. A great, short read about running that any runner can relate to.
