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" ...

Sad to be in shape



My dad saw this pic, and said, "What a great picture! Your mom and I are so proud of both of you. Isn't it great to be in shape?"

To be candid, it feels almost equal parts great and sad ... to think that I waited until I was 43 years old to get into shape is a reminder of how many years I wasted.

Looking forward is great though ... and that's what I'm doing. I can't change my past, but I know the future is going to be fit!
