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" ...

Figure run

Tomorrow is my 24th wedding anniversary. I recently stumbled across a cool app and decided to use it to make my wife an anniversary card ...

http://figurerunning.com/ gives you a GPS app to track your running. So many times I've ran with other apps and thought the map of my run looked a bit like something ... you know ... in the same way you can see certain shapes in clouds. Well, this app let's you more intentionally "draw" while you run. You are the pencil! You can also "pick up" and "put down" the pencil so you can draw distinct shapes that are not connected.

Happy anniversary, sweetie! It took me 3 miles and 36 minutes to run this one out for you ...



Note: there is an iOS and an Android version the app.
