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").

Strolling along

Well, it's Father's Day, and it's been a nice one for me. My wife and kids do a good job of taking care of me, and I appreciate them a whole bunch ...

Since FWSW has started, my wife and I try to walk around the neighborhood on Sunday. It usually comes out to about a three mile stroll. While we were taking our little walk, she said, "You know what? This is the my favorite part of FWSW."

I replied, "You mean this? The walk?"

"Yes, " she replied, "I've always wanted to do this regularly with you since before we even got married. These walks are so special."

Soooo ... you can take one of two things away from this: 1) I'm a cool guy for walking with my wife ... or 2) I'm a toad for waiting over 23 years to give her something that clearly means a lot to her.

Everybody went with #1, right?
