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").

Coming soon ...

Quick clarification from yesterday ... I said that a lot of stuff isn't "fun" about FWSW. I wanted to make sure that didn't sound ungrateful (hence my comments about being thankful and appreciative), but I accidentally left something out. I have had some pretty intense feelings of satisfaction. For example, I'm not having fun when I'm on the stepper, but it does feel real good to set a personal best. Just throwing that out there.

I hit the rowing machine today. Mostly it was all about looking for something different and the rowing machine qualified. I went 5k in a little less than thirty minutes. It felt like a good pace for my first time. While I'm pulling away on that thing, I wondered how likely it was that someone would soon steal my idea for a social networking site and become a mega-billionaire (The Social Network reference). I guess it's just a risk I have to take if I want to get fit. If I'm going to keep doing this rowing thing, I'll need to get some MP3s of a pirate beating a big ol' drum to keep pace (Pirates of the Caribbean reference).

And with those two movie references, get ready for The Lone Ranger movie ... starring Armie Hammer (the actor who played the Winklevoss twins -- both of them!) and Johnny Depp (the actor who played Jack Sparrow). In theaters on July 3!
