In 1982, after selling his jazz bar to devote to writing, Murakami started running to keep fit.A year later, he had finished a solo race from Athens to Marathon, and now, after dozens of races, not to mention triathlons, and from a flop of acclaimed book critics, he reflects on the influence of sport had on his life and his writing.The equal parts of the carnet de voyage games, training diary, and reminiscence, this revelation memory covers his four months of preparation for the 2005 New York Marathon and parameters ranging from Tokyo’s Jingu Gaien Gardens, where he shared the course with an Olympian, from the Charles River, to Boston among young women who surpassed him.Through this marvellous sports lens emerges a horn of plenty of memories and ideas: eureka when he decided to become a writer, his greatest successes and disappointments, his passion for vintage LPs, and the experience, after fifty years, of seeing his running time improve before falling back down.What I’m talking about when I talk about running is rich and revealing, both for the fans of this masterly still deprived of the writer and the explosion of the population of athletes who are similar seeking satisfaction in distance racing.
