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").

Both cheeks

When my youngest son was about two years old, we were walking through the parking lot after church, and he slipped and fell. He cried just a little and said that his butt hurt. I helped him up, brushed him off and said, "uh oh, Matt, something is wrong. I think you broke your butt." He was a little worried and asked if I was sure. I said, "yep. I'm sure. I can tell from here that it's cracked." He didn't get it immediately ...

I was running laps during the morning workout and I thought of that story and it made me chuckle. We've all heard a phrase that I will edit because this is a family blog. The phrase? "Half-butting it" ... or half-bumming, half-tushing, half-derriereing, half-caboosing ... you get the idea, right?

Well, as I was running laps, more than a few times I said to myself, "All out, Sherman (there's that Sherman thing again ... where's that coming from?). No half-butting allowed. Run with both cheeks."
