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 a dozen acclaimed by book critics, he is thinking about the influence of sport on his life and–even more importantly–on his writing.The equal parts of training diary, travel journal, and reminiscence, this revelation memoir covers his four months of preparation for the 2005 New York Marathon and takes us to places ranging from Tokyo’s Jingu Gaien Gardens, where he shared the course with an Olympian, from the Charles River, to Boston among the young women who surpassed him.Thanks to this marvellous sport goal emerges a panorama 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 racing time improve before falling back.In turn funny and sad, playful and philosophical, What I’m talking about When I speak of the Run is rich and revealing, both for fans of this masterly yet again with private circumspection of the writer and the explosion of the population of athletes who seek similar satisfaction in executionFrom Cardboard Edition onwards
