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").

Too muscular

My sons watched Toby's latest FWSW video (S06E05) and thought it was pretty cool. My youngest son said that the soundtrack sounded like a Lord of the Rings movie. He's not far from the truth ... one does not simply walk in morning workouts. Sometimes I think the ability to turn invisible would be a nice ability to have during a workout. I'm paying close attention to my fellow FWSWers to see who makes a comment about a "precious" so we can find out who our Gollum is.

On another note, we were back in the pool today. For many folks, that's their favorite workout, but it's definitely my least favorite workout. I want to go at it hard, but it's really hard to do that. I feel like Spiece should compensate me for my fine work as a pool filter (I'm pretty sure I swallow as much pool water as I sweat during the workout.) And then there's treading water ... it's tough, and apparently it will only get tougher as I continue to get less buoyant (i.e., less fat). I've heard alumni say that Rick has a real hard time treading water because he's so muscular. I'm sure that's my problem too ...
