I need a beard

I've never been a fan of facial hair... then I went to the Polar Bear run yesterday morning. Yowza. A beard would have been awesome. Not a ZZ Top beard, mind you. More like Al from the show Home Improvement. Just thick enough to insulate my face against -5 temps. That would have ruled.

In other arctic news, a runner commented that Brooks brand wind block underwear didn't quite cover everything that needed covering. Make a note of that.

Downside of the beard, however:
1) Gets icey during runs
2) Look like a child molester
3) Significant other won't kiss you

I am thinking of shaving mine off soon. But it does help with the cold. It's a tough choice.

I recommend craft or sugoi. Both have excellent coverage.
