After Halloween 2016, I decided to participate in No Shave November to help raise cancer awareness. After November ended however, I decided to keep growing the beard out, since I had never had one before in my 40 years on this earth AND we'd had some record low temperatures (the face fuzz is warmer).

Now, after three months of growth, I'm having trouble deciding whether or not to keep the beard going. It has been fun being part of the social media hashtag #BeardGang, but I'm not sure if I have the patience to maintain it. It's getting too long for me to groom it myself and I'm not a big fan of having strangers touch my face... well, other than my barber, but he unfortunately resides in Fort Collins and I'm not brave enough to go to anyone else (I know... I have issues).

With that in mind, I figured I'd leave it to the people to decide.
