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" ...

Team Pink

If you don't know much about my team, let me introduce you:

There's Morgan. She's one of the younger contestants this season and is full of energy. She is usually at the front in our workouts, and she goes tirelessly and at full speed. She's our Energizer Bunny.

Caleb is a machine. He looks quiet until the workouts start, and then it's like a switch was flipped and he transforms into some incredible singing, shouting, calorie burning machine. He's a no-excuse guy who works a real hero's job. So, we've got a transforming, machine-like hero? He's clearly our Optimus Prime.

Stacy is married with two kids and teaches school. I can understand how difficult it is for her to do FWSW, and she's killing it. In my opinion, FWSW is harder on moms than dads, so I'm even more impressed with her success. She is indefatigable! I've thought about this one for a while, and I think she's our Wonder Woman.

Taylor? She's our Statue of Liberty. I know that sounds weird, so bear with me. She constantly upholds a high standard that makes others want to be a part of her circle. Her example is a shining beacon. I work harder when she's watching because I don't want to disappoint her. When I grow up, I hope to match her enthusiasm and sweetness of spirit.

So ... that's my team.
