really liked it

In this book Haruki Murakami writes about his running life, doing marathons and triathlons. He writes about the successes and failures, the effect of ageing and his reasons why he runs and keeps running. For me, I felt the first half of the book was more clear and easy read than later, a bit like running a marathon can be. The mood throughout shows the author's general character, and the text never gets boring. It's an easy read, not too long.

Although I know I will never pick up running - love my knees too much to wear them out more, among other things - it's interesting to read what it's like for those who do. And reading about Hawaii and the Massachusetts Cambridge was also worth the reading. So it's definitely a recommended read. :)
