<What I talk about when I talk about running>雖然是一本他記錄他跑步的一些片斷,卻不僅僅是關於跑步。從中我知道了他熱愛Jazz,他怎麽成爲一個小説傢,他怎麽愛上馬拉松,以及他可怕的自律和一些給力的想法。他做過很多瘋狂的事,包括自己一個人在大夏天的高溫下從雅典跑到馬拉松鎮。謝謝BBL把它推薦給我。它讓我思考自己的生活:

– “Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional".

– “Life is basically unfair. But even in a situation that’s unfair, I think it’s possible to seek out a kind of fairness. Of course, that might take time and effort. And maybe it won’t seem to be worth all that. It’s up to each individual to decide whether or not it is."

– “My own individual, stubborn, uncooperative, often self-centered nature that still doubts itself – that, when troubles occur, tries to find something funny, or something nearly funny, about the situation."

P.S. 後來維基百科了一下,原來他的生日也比我晚一天。
