Welcome


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


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

Many of the blog entries on this website predate 1/1/2015. Prior to BMR, I had written articles for various projects, and I have imported many of them into this blog (labeled "retro"). I will continue to add articles as I find them, polish them up and import them.

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" ...

Living proof

Today I tried my first kickboxing group workout at Spiece. I didn't think I could do anything to fell less coordinated than I felt during workouts with EJ and Amber. I was wrong. I came down with my most severe case of Frankitis yet.

The good news is that the new me felt physically capable of keeping up, but the old, bewildered me felt so clueless. I laughingly told Rick and Tina about my apparent failure, and Rick encouraged me with this: "You don't have to be coordinated to get into shape." I'm living proof.
