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" ...

Mid-season Finale

I know that I said tonight would be my last regular blog ... but I want to do a proper recap, so I'll probably do another tomorrow. For now, let's celebrate the mid-season finale.

Well, the public division's season is over, and my wife came in first! I am in awe of how well she has done. The public division contestants didn't have the same degree of oversight and resources that the regular contestants did. I, on the other hand, had all the benefits of a regular contestant AND her pushing me as well.

Are you curious to know who officially won Murphy Family Smallest Winner? I did. Take a look at pictures of my hot wife and you'll see what I'm talking about. I'm definitely that guy who somehow got the girl who was way out of his league. My wife is my prize and has been for twenty-three years and counting ... and what makes it even sweeter is that the quality of our lives will be so much better because we are now so much healthier.

I'm so proud of my first-place sweetheart!
