Thoughts on fitness, health, good nutrition ... and running.

Welcome to Bald Man Running, a blog launched by Frank Murphy on January 1, 2015.

In March, 2013 I was selected as a contestant for the sixth season of Fort Wayne's Smallest Winner. Through this amazing program, I learned about good nutrition, sound exercise and accountability. By October, I would lose over 88 pounds (almost 37% of my original weight)! One of the many things I acquired through FWSW was a love for running. You can retrace my weight loss journey and discover how I became a runner by reading those entries labeled "fwsw" ...

Note: Many of the blog entries on this website predate 1/1/2015. Prior to launching BMR, I had written articles for various projects, and I have imported many of them into this blog (labeled "retro").

First day of workouts

First workout: Ow. My elbow feels fine ... unlike the rest of my body. Now I know what "feel the burn" means ... and the scary thing is that I suspect they were taking it easy on us. I've heard nothing but horror stories about Amber's Tuesday morning workouts. I just hope my elbow appreciates it's good fortune ...

Second workout: Went back in the afternoon on my own (seriously) and gave it a go on the treadmill and recumbent bike ... 30 minutes on each at what must look like a sedate pace to all the veterans. Still I logged 1.5 miles on the treadmill and 4.5 miles on the bike. Who would have thought I could move six miles in one hour under my own power? I'll try this exact same workout in 15 weeks and let you know how far I get.
