What I Talk About When I Talk About Running – Haruki Murakami
A memoir from the Best-Selling author of classics like The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, this book should be required reading for all writers and really any person who aspires to creative endeavors. This was really the first book that not only inspired me to write but also to get up off my ass and clean all the poisons out of my life. It made me fall in love with running and I still pick it up every once in a while to reread it. There is so much wisdom in these pages. Give it a read, I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
