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").

New toy

Got my new GPS watch today ...

It's a nice watch too ... a Garmin Forerunner 910XT. It's really nice. It's also quite expensive.

Rose and I have officially passed the one year anniversary of maintaining our weight loss. Our health insurer has a program that if you lose 10% of your weight, they will give you $500. We already got that. If you keep it off for a year, they'll give you another $1000. With that money, I decided to splurge on a deluxe, super nice watch. I've been running long enough that I think I'll definitely get good use from it.

And I haven't actually my watch yet ... it has arrived in the mail safely (I know this because of online package tracking). My watch is at home, but I'm at work ... I suspect the next 90 minutes will be agonizingly slow ...
