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").

Skinny people

I was working out at Spiece the other day and was mildly annoyed that the particular machine I wanted to use wasn't available. Spiece has a bunch of them, but they were all in use. I just looked at all the thin, skinny, little people using *my* equipment and I caught myself thinking, "what are so many thin, skinny, little people doing on this equipment? Don't they realize some people *need* this equipment more than they do?"

I'm not proud of myself. I confess that it took more than a few seconds before it dawned on me they might be thin, skinny and little BECAUSE they were exercising. If they weren't exerrcising then they probably wouldn't have been so thin, skinny and little. I look forward to the day when a future FWSW contestant will see me working out and wonder why such a gloriously thin, skinny and little dude is using *their* exercise equipment ...
