Haruki Murakami is a running novelist

haruki murakami

The new book by Haruki Murakami has been published in 2007. It is an essay about his “running”.

It seems that for Murakami, “running” is closely tied with his novels within him. I think that he is a novelist who is very conscious about the relationship between “being physical” and “expressing with words”.

He has tried many marathons such as the Boston Marathon or Lake Saroma Ultra Marathon, which course goes on for 100km.

He is also a triathlon athlete. He says that he jogs daily and trains himself quite seriously and he listens to his favoarites music of Beach Boys’s, Red Hot Chilli Pepper’s or Beck’s while he runs.

Sounds like his never-falling-off novels are partly supported by his run.

But he does not run for writing. That, I think, makes him a true runner.
