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" ...

18 Mile redux

Two weeks ago, I ran my first 18 miler. I repeated that distance today.

2:54:10 (9:40/mi) ... that's 36 minutes faster than last time!

This is one of the cool things about running ... you can track your improvement. As you get faster and stronger, it shows up in measurable ways.

On my last 18 miler, it was about finishing. Today it was about dominating. I felt that I did that.
