墓志铭测试。总是希望从各种经验中学到什么，让自己变得好一些，再好一些。最开始期许会达到一个让自己满意的“自己”，但后来发现，这个确不太可能，那么，保持一直在路上、永不停歇的状态，也就够了。嗯，好一个never walked。I expect that this winter I'll run another marathon somewhere in the world. And I'm sure some next summer I'll be out in another triathlon somewhere, giving it my best shot. Thus the seasons come and go, and the years pass by. I'll age one more year, and probably finish another novel. One by one, I'll face the tasks before me and complete them as best I can. Focusing on each stride forward, but at the same time taking a long-range view, scanning the scenery as far ahead as I can. I am, after all, a long-distance runner. My time, the rank I attain, my outward appearance -- all of these are secondary. For a runner like me, what's really important is reaching the goal I set myself, under my own power. I give it everything I have, endure what needs enduring, and am able, in my own way, to be satisfied. From out of the failures and joys I always try to come away having grasped concrete lesson. (It's got to be concrete, no matter how small it is. ) And I hope that, over time, as one race follows another, in the end I'll reach a place I'm content with. Or maybe just catch a glimpse of it. (Yes, that's a more appropriate way of putting it.) Some day, if I hve a gravestone and I'm able to pick out what's carved on it, I'd like it to say this: Haruki Murakami, 1949-20**, Writer (and Runner), at least he never walked. At this point, that's what I'd like it to say.
