What I Talk About When I Talk About Running by Haruki Murakami with Philip Gabriel
If you have ever wondered what drives a person to voluntarily endure a 26.2-mile trek up hills, in pouring rain or scorching heat, this book will give you some insight along with a few laughs. Once the XXIX Olympiad marathon begins, I will be rooting for 35-year-old American Deena Kastor. She has struggled with numerous setbacks on the road to this, her third Olympic Games. Run on, Deena !
