NELSON'S RUNNING

RUNNING REPORT - 2005

baltimore harbor2005 was an amazing year for me in many ways, but particularly as a recreational runner. Thanks to my passion/obsession for distance training and racing, I logged an annual total of 1143 miles (compared to 944.9 in 2004 and 834.2 in 2003) and ran five (!) personal bests! I must acknowledge three special groups: my weekend running buds (especially Lauren, Joe & Eli), the Distinguished Donors to my St. Jude Marathon fundraising and my SUNRISE colleagues & audience who cheered me on all the way from the other side of the world.

Among the many 2005 highlights:

March
*LA Marathon - Unexpectedly ran the entire course with my pal Mark Daviau.met up with the SUNRISE cameras at Mile 17 and finished with a PR of 4:14:01.

*Reggae Run 10k - A PR of 49:07 with my inspiring neighbor, Tom Jackman.

April
*LMU Run for the Bay 10k - A PR of 45:38 and so much fun with my Seven Network teammates Louise Pennell, Jason & Mev Blount, Stewart McNeil and Jo Haney.

May
*LA Sports & Fitness magazine - Interviewed a hero of mine, Ultramarathoner Dean Karnazes for "LA Sports & Fitness" magazine.

May
*Palos Verdes Half Marathon - The most beautiful and challenging course imaginable! And a PR of 1:48:39.

July
*City of Cypress 10k - No personal record that hot day, but a special appearance by lovely Heather Pennell made it a morning to remember!

December
*St. Jude Memphis Marathon - The most emotional, fun running experience I've ever had, and for a great cause. New friends in Memphis (Charles, Tiffany, Kari, Teah & Marianna), thousands of dollars raised for the Children's Hospital and a PR of 4:11:39 were icing on the cake!
