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" ...

Winner, winner ...


Weigh-in again ... 3.2 pounds ... again. I wanted more than that, but it was enough to pass a few milestones. I'm down to 200.6 pounds. It's been a little over ten years since I've weighed 200 pounds. It's also just over 16% lost of my original weight.

Most importantly, I needed to lose at least 3.0 pounds to keep my lead over my wife (she's at 15.8%). She closed the gap a bit, so I've got to step up the workouts this week. Do you know what the winner gets in MFSW (Murphy Family Smallest Winner)? A thinner, fitter, sexier spouse.

Don't get me wrong ... I want to beat her badly, but I also realize that together we've already won so much. Every drop of sweat has been worth it.

I'm also getting close to that special blog entry I'm growing even more excited about ... it should be next week. Don't worry. As entries go, it's mostly harmless. It's something that I've been wanting to write all season long.
