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").

Seems like a lot has happened today. Another week of workouts finished (4 down, 11 to go).

I tried doing crab crawls today, and I have it on good authority that I am not very good at it. I tried to make it look fun, intense, thoughtful and even sexy ... no dice. I'm just one awkward crab, folks.

Rick issued the 100 Flight Challenge: 100 flights of stairs on the stepper machine. I was zipping right along. At around 30 minutes/85 flights, the machine crashed. I was going 3.5 flights per minute, so I kept going until I was over 100, but I have no idea how long it took ... and my photo proof is of error.

[Note: I had a photo, but I couldn't find it to include in this entry. Honest.]

"Heart Rate Not Installed" it said ... really? I was sorely tempted to hug the rainbow out of that fabulous apparatus. I could have cavorted in my jodhpurs. (It's a family website ... I used dictionary.com to find alternate words to how I really felt).
