I recently finished listening to the audiobook What I Talk About When I Talk About Running, by Haruki Murakami. I don’t know how to write a proper book review, nor do I actually care to know, to be honest. However, I thought I’d write my impressions of it for consideration of writing such a book myself, having been a runner for almost 25 years now, and not shy to writing collections of vignettes. I didn’t keep great notes during those years, not even racing stats, but I’ve just started a new phase of running where I am running differently, and have technology for it like never before in the form of a Garmin. So perhaps I can write that running book, a sequel to a book I had never written, with some flashbacks to what would have been in that prequel. That’s possible, is it not?
Just when I thought I had covered all the changes I’ve been making in my life over the past few weeks, and in the upcoming few weeks, I’ve decided to take up a few more! These came my way and after a little analysis, I’ve decided to try or embrace them! Which depends on how new they are to me compared to what I’ve experienced before.
