I’m not a runner. Not in the least sense am I a runner. But this book was still highly enjoyable. In this book Murakami talks of his life as a runner. He is a full-time novelist who has been running for the past 25 years. Murakami being a novelist is able to beautifully describe his running experiences. It is almost like time slows down for him during his runs. He has all kinds of details about various runs like the amount of roadkill he has passed.
He also discusses the dilemma that we all face as we grow old, our bodies not working like they used to. But even with his marathon times not what they used to be he continues to run.
