Listen to a sample:
From the best-selling writer of Kafka on the Shore comes this affluent and revelatory memoir about composing and running, as well as the built-in impact both have made on his lifestyle. Equal parts training log, travelogue, and reminiscence, this revealing memoir covers Murakami's four-month preparation for the 2005 New York City Marathon.
Settings array from Tokyo, where he once shared the lessons using an Olympian, to the Charles River in Boston, among young women who outpace him.
Through this magnificent lens of athletics emerges a cornucopia of memories and insights: the eureka moment when he decided to become writer, his successes and disappointments, his passion for vintage LPs, along with the experience, after age 50, of having seen his race instances improve then fall back.

This was great! But I was kind of hoping it would make me want to quit smoking and start being a runner. It did not. If anything, it solidified my already-pretty-solid hatred of the idea of running. God damn stupid healthy Haruki.
Lisa from Hong Kong said on Goodreads:
You really have to be interested in running, particularly long-distance running to enjoy this book. There isn't a lot of insight into the author's life as an author, but as I said, if you're into running...
