"I had originally set out to see if it were possible to translate what I knew of Zen and dialectical philosophy into the action or 'practice' of running. This was to be a personal experiment, conducted according to my experience as a professional social science scholar-researcher ...... I gradually formed the resolve to make a deliberate effort to pursue the possible connection between what is ordinarily thought of to be difficult, if not downright puzzling, philosophy and metaphysics on one hand, and the most commonplace, if not dull-witted, of human actions on the other." So begins Leo DiPorta's journal of a year's effort of intense, almost marathon like running. His entries comprise a uniquely incisive view of the physical exhilaration of running coupled with the mental peace attained by the practice of Zen. And you will share in DiPorta's awe as he breaks through the new levels of physical and mental awareness during and after his running experience. His many moments of growing self-awareness are vividly rendered: from the initial preparation, of both body and mind, for running; the gradual build-up in physical and mental peace as he runs; the incredible flush of strength that is achieved at his first really good run; the turning to Zen philosophy in times of distress and when further instruction is needed; and the unique counterpoint of the peace of good running and the stress of DiPorta's regular world. ZEN RUNNIUNG is a fascinating look into the mind of a runner, one that will add new perspective to the sport of running - and the practice of insightful thinking. DiPorta's journal is illuminating, useful, and powerfully written.
