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").

HRM w/ pic

For those of you think you've got cool friends, I'll see your friends and raise you a heart monitor. Look at this really cool gift from a friend and his family! Thank you, Tyrone Wilson, Penny Wilson and family!

I ran my first mile with my new HRM ... 10:06 ... a personal best! After reviewing the stats, I see where I could have done things a little differently. I'm shooting for a 9:00 mile. This new toy is going to make the rest of this season a lot more fun!

Note: The water bottle was already mine. I picked it out myself as a "Team Pink" thing. I dropped it on the floor shortly after taking picture. and it shattered! I am officially death to the entire water bottle species ...
