    To get through life some people drink copious amounts of alcohol to de stress Others smoke tobacco or cannabis Some try heavier substances My drug of choice my way of clearing my head calming down and escaping for a few hours is to run I am an absolute junkie Sometimes I feel like I live to run When I’m not reading writing or cycling to work then I’m running It’s a fantastic experience blasting my favourite psychedelic rock albums as I lose all my troubles on the road Anyone who has taken up running seriously will understand how much of a drug it can be As strange as it may sound I don’t think I’d be able to write a single review on here or even read a single book if I didn’t run regularly I’m naturally uite a fidgety person I have lots of energy and don’t like to sit still I want to be outside I also pace up and down a lot if I’m bored Running calms me down It allows me to sit at a desk sometimes all day writing essays for university It also means I sleep at night Without running I just don’t get much I end up with about 4 5 hours of sleep because I’m just not tired I’m then perpetually groggy and moody the next day Running is such a healthy thing to do and as Murakami recognises for some people it is essential for mental balance It keeps them sane Murakami gets running; he understands the point of it I’ve often been asked “why do you go running?” or “what’s the point of it?” The answer is simple I go running to live Being a literature student and working in a pretty slow and unphysical environment means I’m restless We all need some form of exercise and some time to ourselves to reflect and be introspective And that's what running is all about at least for me and the author of this book For Murakmi it was an essential part of his writing process In order to write novels he had to run As he was aiming for a deadline or the end of story he was also aiming for a personal best in his next marathon Ironically I’m doing the exact same thing As I approach my dissertation deadline I’m also training for a marathon Reading the words of another who did the same thing as I’m doing for the same reasons is really uite revealing My idea which makes little sense to my friends and family was given much clarity in these pages To hear another say the same thing one who was immensely successful gave me a little confidence boost and some motivation for my marathon As a treat to myself I’m actually running it on my birthdayThe book takes on the form of a memoir and relays the memories of the author as he trained competed and eventually reflected upon his experience There’s much wisdom to be gained from these pages and as I said Murakmi gets running especially the near meditative mind set it can get you in During long distance runs your mind forgets about the outside world and get into a sort of rhythm with your body ten miles can pass in an instant as you experience the runner's high Not all runs are as good as this but on some you lose yourself It’s wonderful Running is wonderful And for the right reader this would be a wonderful bookYou can connect with me on social media via My Linktree

    happy sighYou know when you read a book and it just speaks to you? Something about the time and place and just all the circumstances match up and you know you read the book at the perfect time? This was thatMy drive to immerse myself in the world of writing keeps growing and I've found so much fun in collecting books about writers and writing that I can't wait to sink into I had to start somewhere so I picked up What I Talk About When I Talk About Running because back when I bought it a few months ago I'd read the first few pages in the bookshop and it had really piued my interestThis book is definitely about writing We learn about Murakami's methods his work ethic why he became a writer in the first place what keeps him writing now But than that it is a book about running About why he loves running how it has influenced his life how it interlinks with his writing It's a journal about his training his ups and downs and for a person who really really hate running no really friends I HATE IT I found this an absolute pleasure Sure this was about running but it was really about a person who loves something and I learned so much from his determination and passion and consistencyIt was such a meditative reading experience for me a chance to listen to someone talk about their life and the lessons they've learned through a journal on running and writing

    Hashiru Koto ni Tsuite Kataru Toki ni Boku no kataru koto What I Talk About When I Talk About Running Haruki MurakamiWhat I Talk About When I Talk About Running is a memoir by Haruki Murakami in which he writes about his interest and participation in long distance running Murakami started running in the early 1980's and since then has competed in over twenty marathons and an ultra marathonIn the first part Murakami gives reasons that make him run Physical fitness is important to him and the constant challenge of breaking the record of the previous day is what motivates him to keep moving until he is forty The point at which he finds that he cannot improve his times any longer gives him a shock A motive is thus lost He is struggling with the fact of getting old and accepting the associated limits of his capabilities In describing his sport Murakami also describes his character and his way of coping with life Without feeling his physical limits again and again he could not follow his calling as a writer He combines running with writing in a symbiosis the one is not possible without the otherعنوانها «از دو دویدن که حرف می‌زنم از چه حرف می‌زنم»؛ «وقتی از دویدن صحبت میکنم در چه موردی صحبت می‌کنم»؛ نویسنده هاروکی موراکامی؛ تاریخ نخستین خوانش روز نخست ماه آوریل سال 2011میلادیعنوان از دو دویدن که حرف می‌زنم از چه حرف می‌زنم؛ نویسنده هاروکی موراکامی؛ مترجم مجتبی ویسی؛ تهران، چشمه، 1388؛ در 183ص؛ شابک 9789643627553؛ چاپ سوم 1389؛ چاپ چهارم 1390؛ در 179 ص؛ چاپ ششم 1394؛ موضوع داستانهای نویسندگان ژاپنی سده 21معنوان وقتی از دویدن صحبت میکنم در چه موردی صحبت می‌کنم؛ نویسنده هاروکی موراکامی؛ مترجم علی حاجی قاسم؛ تهران، نگاه، 1390؛ در 160ص؛ شابک 9789643627553؛ چاپ سوم 1389؛ چاپ چهارم 1390؛ در 179ص؛ چاپ ششم 1394؛ وقتی از دویدن صحبت میکنم در چه موردی صحبت میکنم، آرام و ساده است؛ یادمانهای «موراکامی» است، نویسنده ی محبوب «ژاپنی» برنامه ای دقیق و منظم برای دویدن، و شرکت در مسابقات ماراتن دارند، و در این کتاب از لذت این ورزش استقامتی، و تاثیراتی که میتواند روی زندگی و حتی نویسندگی و شخصیت داستانها بگذارد، حرف میزنندتاریخ بهنگام رسانی 06071399هجری خورشیدی؛ ا شربیانی

    I'm a bit baffled by how anyone who's not a distance runner could possibly be interested in this book but I personally got a lot out of it This is in spite of the fact that I'm not a Murakami girl and honestly didn't enjoy the style of this book at all I always feel when I'm reading him that I've somehow wound up with a crappy translation but then I realize that I'm reading the same version as all the English only Murakami lovers out there so apparently I just don't like the way he writes Still I did enjoy this book and I've given it four stars because I've found since finishing that it's really helped me with my own running Now when I'm out there pounding the pavement I think of Murakami and some things he wrote about and it keeps me going That's just what I'm after with these exercise books What I Talk About When I Talk About Running covers three main themes running writing and growing older This last was sort of a surprise and was where I drew a large and unexpected amount of comfort not exclusively related to running Murakami was in his early thirties when he sold his jazz bar to write a first novel and he took up distance running around that time If Murakami can change careers uit smoking start running marathons regularly and become a writer beloved of everyone in the world except for me well then there's hope still for all of us My life isn't necessarily decided yet just because I'm nearing thirty So now when I'm out running I like to fantasize that I'm a sort of Haruki MurakamiTilda Swinton figure who's uit my job in social work to devote myself to my writing career When I'm not on sabbatical in Hawaii I live in a sprawling Manhattan castle with my older husband younger boyfriend and adorable children and I take these long rambling runs through the city to clear my mind for the novel writing that sustains our unconventional and extremely good looking family I am currently at work on a sort of vanity project this book about exercise called Where I'm Running From which chronicles my personal journey from indolent vice to literary genius I know not all my adoring fans will necessarily enjoy this unconventional little piece but if it helps a few poor schlumps discover the benefits of running well then my work is not in vainI ran 15 miles yesterday and not a few of those can be dedicated to Murakami who really isn't a bad running buddy at all as far as things go Running is a solitary sport which is why I like it and Murakami understands and in some ways ameliorates the legendary loneliness of the long distance runner This is why I'm giving it four stars even though I thought it was badly written Again I don't uite see how anyone who isn't a distance runner could get much from this book and in fact I got bored towards the end when he started talking about triathlons as I personally don't swim or bike I do think non runners could appreciate the description of his ultra marathon which was luridly fascinating to me as someone who would never consider running 62 miles and who believes people who do this sort of thing are complete mental cases However the main appeal of this book was in being able to relate to it Murakami wrote about running writing and growing older in a way that made me feel better euipped to slog through all three of these often exhausting activities that's no small thing

    Audiobook narrated by Haruki MurakamiListening to Murakami speak about the very universal way our inner voice functions with random thoughts like clouds in the sky that come and go was a little taste of heaven for me Given that I too was a runner for 25 years of my life running marathons and hilly trail half marathons often beginning my training runs in the dark with a flashlight — this was absolutely a lovely delightful Audiobook I enjoyed it very much I’m familiar with the language the culture the drive the speed training the setbacks the injuries the exhaustion the pain the adrenaline rush on race days the replacement drinks the log books the socks and shoes the chaffing the spirituality the emotions the runner’s high and exhilaration I’ve been away from running almost as many years as I spent running obsessivelyWould I have enjoyed this tape 25 years ago? Not really I was too busy ‘doing’ my own thing I wouldn’t have appreciated ‘my own’ accomplishments back then either It wasn’t as though I woke up at 4am to dress for 33° outside to begin my run and say to myself “aren’t I inspiring?” Not a chance BUT NOW as an older fart who wouldn’t even consider running today I can indulge in a few semi inspiring or crazy memories from my younger running days I remember ‘starting’ a marathon in Oakland in the pouring rainand it ‘never’ stopped the entire 26219 miles Nuts I was nuts And exhilarated Breakfast was delicious afterwards Listening to Murakami share about himself his daily running schedule his running in Hawaii his attempts to answer the uestions “what does he think about when he is running” MIGHT EVEN BE MORE ENJOYABLE or at least as much TO THE NON RUNNER than the runner As I said I don’t think I would’ve enjoyed this audiobook as much when I ‘was’ a runner as much as I did now Murakami says he doesn’t really think of anything worth mentioning he runs to avoid occasionally he runs not to get fat The only people who ever even ask him the uestion of what he thinks about when he’s running are people who have never been running and don’t have a clue he’s not the type of person we are being alone for five hours is painful He enjoys being by himself he mostly listens to rock music when he runs because the rhythm is the right beathe talked about being a young runner then turning 50 he talked about his emotions about growing old he talked a few times about competition and how that is not the world and lifestyle he is after He simply competes with himself There’s a lot of wisdom from Murakami He’s likable and humble A meditative type of listening and appreciating for me Lovely as can be YESI’m inspired

    A collection of personal essays about writing endurance and running What I Talk About When I Talk About Running considers the impact running has had on the author’s life and work Over the course of nine short essays Haruki Murakami travels from Tokyo to Boston as he details his training regimen for the 2005 New York City Marathon and reflects on what running means to him The author argues for approaching running like writing as a way to practice self discipline on a daily basis but not to the extent that the idea can serve as a thesis for the book which comes across as a bit scattered and slight The essays feel disconnected from each other and each comes across as a collection of loosely related thoughts on running; Murakami tries but fails to disguise his book’s lack of substance with an abundance of prosaic descriptive passages The book has some interesting points but I didn’t feel impacted by it in the way many others on here have been

    It was a rainy evening about seven years ago when I entered a book store It was the perfect refuge – warm lights thin crowd a tea bar and loads of books I marched to the tea bar ordered a ginger mint tea placed my bag on a chair in the seating area and hopped to the alleys to browse for books while the tea was being brewed Running my eyes like a suirrel I was surveying the titles one after another when they came to a halt – they spotted a pristine white cover with a circular swirl in blood red That is it If the cover art struck me as a bored painter’s good night splash the name at the bottom of it left me thinking THE ELEPHANT VANISHES Err Has the elephant vanished into the red white whirlpool? What kind of a book could this be? And then my eyes fell on the name at the top band of the cover MURAKAMI Is it a he or she? A Japanese? A Chinese? A Korean? What kind of genre does she write in? Is this a book I want to read now when the evening is setting in and I am on the verge of being serenaded by some piping hot tea and solitude? I toyed with the idea by reading the blurb Well no prizes for guessing that I picked up the book that day And thus flagged my relationship with Haruki Murakami A man who over the next many years continued to sway me and surprise me soothe me and shock me In his world ordinary things turned magical; magical became mundane His idea of love was both endearing and futile his doggedness both inspiring and fatiguing He wrote tomes and uickies short stories and essays and with every work left something sparkling for me to wallow in My journey with him went through Hear the Wind Sing 184 Kafka on the Shore Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage The Strange Library Kino and Scheherazade and here I am entering my eighth year with the most wonderful ‘What I Talk About When I Talk About Running’ In this heart warming inspiring anecdotal memoir Murakami talks about his difficult decision to close his profitable and popular restaurant to dedicate time to writing which he had just begun doing and falling on the crutches of running to keep him going Beginning with short sprints to ending up doing a marathon run of 62 miles in his late 50s he purged all the negativity off his system and attained a constructive ‘void’ as he calls it Insulating himself from worldly cacophony and drawing sweet nectar from his inner springs to fortify his writerly pen is what he achieved by running While reading I stumbled upon nuggets of wisdom on writing and life like one would accidentally discover a green patch on the sidelines of a long tarred running pitch “The most important thing we learn at school is the fact that the most important things can’t be learned at school”“It was a major directional change – from the kind of open life we’d led for seven years to a closed life I learnt a lot of important lessons during that time It was real schooling But you can’t keep up that kind of life forever Just as with school you enter it learn something and then it’s time to leave”“Emotional hurt is the price a person has to pay in order to be independent”“I stop everyday right at the point where I feel I can write Do that and the next day’s work goes surprisingly smoothly He further says that the most important traits of an author are talent focus and endurance in that order He should know With a writing career spanning half a century the margin of error can well be dispatched to near naught I shall be biased and wear it on my sleeve for what can you possibly not love in an intent that sounds like this “I felt that the indispensible relationship I should build in my life was not with a specific person but with an unspecified number of readers” The man loves running another name for embracing life He began running when he was thirty three and he hasn’t stopped since More vitality jazz cats and happiness and a Nobel to you Murakami san Happy 69th Birthday

    Most runners run not because they want to live longer but because they want to live life to the fullest If you're going to while away the years it's far better to live them with clear goals and fully alive then in a fog and I believe running helps you to do that Exerting yourself to the fullest within your individual limits that's the essence of running and a metaphor for life — and for me for writing as wholeHaruki Murakami What I Talk About When I Talk About RunningIf you love running reading or writing or are a fan of Haruki Murakami's this book is for you What I Talk About When I Talk About Running is a short by Murakami's standards memoir on running life music and writing In addition to this we discover some of his favorite authors and their works Note to self must track down Raymond Carver's What We Talk About When We Talk About LoveConfession time I'm not a runner I have no desire to be but this is a book by Murakami after all so it must be read To uote the New York Times reviewer “I’m guessing that the potential readership for “What I Talk About When I Talk About Running” is 70 percent Murakami nuts 10 percent running enthusiasts and an overlapping 20 percent who will be on the brink of orgasm before they’ve even sprinted to the cash register” I fall into that 70% While reading this book I became enad with Murakami the man and his dedicated practical and philosophical approach to life writing and running Murakami didn’t begin running seriously until he was 33 and now runs 6 miles a day rain or shine He has competed in many marathons has run a 62K and competes in triathlons And thru this all Murakami describes himself as an average runner listening to his musical selection for the day note to self must track down Lovin' Spoonful Greatest Hits on Spotify and taking in the beauty of the world around him Throughout the book his running consistency and the dedication he shares with the reader becomes a metaphor for his life and the many accomplishments he has earned throughout his career Murakami doesn't run to win win races; he runs to be healthy and active He loves to run I get that I love to practice inversions I once spent 40 minutes standing on my head My friends thought I was nuts but Murakami would understandMurakami does not make any claims about how running has completely transformed his life Nor is he trying to sell us on anything What he does here is simply share his thoughts on running and the profound impact it can have on a person without even realizing it Murakami's dedication to running every day just like his dedication to writing comes from his belief that maintaining consistency in anything you do will lead to accomplishing the goals you are seeking This is not to say that there won’t be fears to be faced injuries delays or frustrations but that’s part of the experience This is much the same philosophy Jack London espoused in Martin Eden a book I highly recommendThe philosophy Murakami most wants to share with us here is that life is about getting a little bit better than where you were This is also a major theme of his novels This is mind expanding it is a lesson for everything we do in this life Murakami says it even better “For me running is both exercise and a metaphor Running day after day piling up the races bit by bit I raise the bar and by clearing each level I elevate myself At least that’s why I’ve put in the effort day after day to raise my own level I’m no great runner by any means I’m at an ordinary – or perhaps like mediocre – level But that’s not the point The point is whether or not I improved over yesterday In long distance running the only opponent you have to beat is yourself the way you used to be”

    In What I Talk About When I Talk About Running Haruki Murakami doesn't try to convince others that we should all become long distance runnerstriathletes like him He does talk about why he took up running how it has helped him with his creativity and why he will continue to run as long as he feels the need to do soI've never read a book by Murakami other than this one But the interesting way in which he views the world makes me think that I'd probably enjoy his stuffI listened to this rather short audiobook on my daily commute Murakami shares a lot of intimate details about his life that fans of his writing may really enjoyBefore he took up running Murakami said he was overweight and smoked around 60 cigarettes a day 60 per dayHe wasn't just looking for a way to become fit He wanted a exercise where he was left alone with his thoughts and challenged to focus for long periods of timeMurakami says that when he writes a novel it is a matter of focus and endurance He finds it difficult to drill down through the rock of the mind to hit veins of creativity uoting from memory please forgive the inaccuraciesThe focus that runners use to finish a long race is similar he believes to the focus needed to write page after page until the end of a novel I think that type of mental ability is something that could be used in any creative endeavor not just writing For Murakami writing is how he makes his artI liked that even though Murakami loves running and extols its virtues he says that he never tells other people that they should take it up He thinks that our life paths reveal themselves to us in a uniue way that only we knowHe runs because he loves it If you love it too run If you don't do what you love walk skip jump swim whateverI can get behind that philosophy Do what makes you happy because that happiness is a clue to what you were born to doRecommended for writers runners Murakami's fans and anyone who enjoys memoirs What I Talk About When I Talk About Running made me wish that I loved running Because I don't

    Nothing in the real world is as beautiful as the illusions of a person about to lose consciousnessMurakami's mind has always fascinated me; that he transcends the normal and dull spreading them into a realistic dreamlike colorful soulful reality amazes me And I think when most of us read someone that fascinates andor amazes us we want to know what that person is like what makes him or her tick And obviously we're almost always disappointed an amazing mind doesn't eual an amazing person an interesting mind doesn't eual an interesting person Who can live up to the novel they write? If the novel is any good it's impossible Life is like that full of disillusionment What takes place in our imagination sure as hell beats reality And yet we go through moment to moment thinking we're living in reality but really we aren't Why else do we all disagree so much? We're all living in our own alternate realities and no two are the same Getting into a runner's zone is an experience in which you immerse yourself in your own reality while simultaneously escaping reality by seeming to look down at it and poke fun of it from afar During this time your own reality is a directly elevated version of itself; a mimicked but increased version full of and due to pain and body awareness While this is happening your consciousness while in part far adeptly aware than normal because of the pain – also seems to float away allowing you to view your reality from high above All together you feel how silly everything is how intense it all is how lacking it all is how everything it all is And you feeland you float And you realize how very much the body and mind are connected and that patience really is a dear virtue Life itself is enhanced Emotional hurt is the price a person has to pay in order to be independent One thing I really like about running is how individualistic it is You choose where you run; you choose when you run; you choose your own pace; you don't have to worry about getting hit in the head with a ball; no asshole is going to wrestle you to the ground or kick you in the shins you are by yourself in every important way It's all you You listen to yourself the inner rumblings of your mind and body; you get to know pain and pleasure at their extremes It's all within you your choice your body your consciousness We know the world better by knowing ourselves better And let's be honest you is all you'll ever be able to trust You was there from the start and is there now And you is all there ever was and ever will be
