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").

Marathon Accomplished

I did it. 4:56:56 (11:18 / mi).

I may not have hit my target pace this morning, but as I crossed he finish line, I set another personal milestone ... 1000 total miles logged over the last year.

I started logging my miles run in June 2013. As I was working through my marathon training plan, I realized that I was really close to finishing the marathon and hitting exactly 1000 miles at the exact same moment. I really wanted that to happen.

So, I did it. I've ran 1000 miles in a year. Tomorrow, I'll post more thoughts about the actual marathon experience. For now, I'm going to watch a music video ...
