I read his first book as I was training for my first Tri and really enjoyed it. I guess reading isn't always about literary excellence, it can be about identifying with an event/situation/feeling.

The Accidental Ironman - Martyn Brunt

Fartleks & Flatulence - David Berridge

I read Born to Run a while back and it had me hooked. I ran my first ultra shortly after. It also inspired a brief foray into 'barefoot' running (shudder). The mention of Murakami though, reminded me of another japanese author, Kazuo Ishiguro, and his book 'Never let Me Go'. It's completely unrelated to running but very beautiful and it's the first book to actually make me cry.

Fartleks & Flatulence sounds like an absolute winner, though!

I loved Born to Run, such a great book. I shall now be putting Never Let Me Go in my wish list - I like a book that makes you cry!! I'm normally a horror reader, so to take a diversion into a weepy is a good distraction before delving back into blood, gore and scariness!!!!

I think the new edition is called "Can't swim, can't bike, can't run... But can leave Jacqueline Howett's sorry ass for dust when it comes to hissy fits and flouncing"

(although they had to resize the cover to fit the revised title on )

HillLee that Ishiguro book is about clones used for organ transplants, so I don't think you need worry too much.  It's a rip off of Michael Marshall Smith's Spares, only set in an alternate present rather than an unlikely future...

They think it's the future but it's really the past, it's all a dream and they are aliens.  Sue Ellen did it.

I thought Miss Scarlet did it ?

No silly Holgs sinks, but everyone knows that....

It's when the elephants get lose on the airplane that's the shocker

Wear a neckless of chillies on a flight just to be on the safe side. Elephants aren't keen on them.
