On Running

From What I Talk About When I Talk About Running by Haruki Murakami:

"The desire in me to be alone hasn't changed. Which is why the hour or so I spend running, maintaining my own silent, private time, is important to help keep my mental well-being. When I'm running I don't have to talk to anybody and don't have to listen to anybody. All I need to do is gaze at the scenery passing by. This is a part of my day I can't do without."

And also:

"Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional."
