NELSON'S RUNNING

RUNNING REPORT - 2018

In spite of the globe trotting I did this year, I managed to keep up with my passionate running routine...even if many of those miles were spent on Hotel treadmills! Not bad if there are views like the ones in South Africa (elephants and oceans!) and Baltimore (the harbor). Even when scenic sites were not available, like in London, I used the time to rehearse my cabaret show, "Just in Time," which I performed in NYC, Los Angeles and London.

With all the travel I did for both work and recreation, I used running to explore new destinations. In the States, those included Charleston, Atlanta, Honolulu and Memphis (Elvis sighting!). And I always find something new even when running in longtime favorite places in NYC, the Hamptons, Sydney (Australia), Los Angeles and my Pennsylvania hometown.

If you've been following my running routines, you know I log miles unfettered by gadgets or music. It's my time to rehearse new material, brainstorm ideas or, as in the case of my father's funeral in October, be alone with my thoughts.

I hope whatever fitness pursuits you follow in the new year bring you joy and wellness, inside and out!

Some of my spectacular running locations in 2018 included:
