What I talk about when I talk about running

What I Talk About When I Talk About Running What I Talk About When I Talk About Running by Haruki Murakami

My review

rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is definitely a running book. I can't imagine a Murakami fan would want to read this (unless they were also a runner), but I found it a very enjoyable read simply because I am. This is an autobiography, centered around the author's life as an amateur runner. His simple philosophies are wonderfully explained through examples drawn from running and training. I found myself agreeing with him time and time again.

I've heard soooo many people talk about this book. Guess I should pick it up then, huh? ;-)

I really enjoyed it. Very thoughtful and measured. Actually, just thinking about it makes me want to run - which is good, since I've been in a bit of a drought...
