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" ...

In sync


My wife and I are certainly getting in sync on this whole experience. We go to church in the morning, eat lunch, take a small break, get in a workout together, and take care of shopping, laundry and cooking for the week. I can't believe how fiercely she has embraced the whole program, and I know she's working harder at this than I am.

We're losing roughly the same amount of weight (seems like we're always a fraction of percentage away from each other), but she's doing it without EJ, Amber, etc. So that's impressive. She also doesn't have the same access to Spiece that I do, so that's also impressive. She does the lion's share of the cooking and laundry (I help). She tackled Rick's challenge today and finished the 100 flights, one mile, 50 flights in 56:30. It was her first extended stint on the stepper, so I'm darn proud of that time. She's run two 5k events with me so far and is registered for two more. Together, we've lost over 70 pounds!

Could I have made it this far into FWSW by myself? I know that I wouldn't have came this far without her ... not just because she's helping me to do it, but because she's my reason for doing it.
