I am currently reading a great (and short) book by the Japanese author Haruki Murakami titled “What I talk about when I talk about running”. Murakami usually writes great fiction novels such as Norwegian woods or Wind-up bird chronicle but this book is really what the title says… what he talks about when he runs. Murakami is a long distance runner and running is one of his passion. This is like a sort of a memoir of Murakami’s life but you really have the sense that running and pushing his limits really helps him to write better novels. I also run, not as much as him nor do I run long distance (usually not more than 15km) but I run often. Running helps me to solve my research problems and it really helps to generate news ideas for future research. We all face moments where we lack creativity and I believe running helps to rejuvenate your creativity and that is the sense you get from reading Murakami’s book. I strongly suggest this little wonderful book to all researchers. Some of you will relate to Murakami’s passion for running because you are runners as well and for others, it might initiate the desire to start running.
