I lost a good friend this afternoon. A friend that has been with me for some four months now. Yes, my beard and I parted company at the hands of my Remington clippers only a few hours ago.
The journey we shared was one of beauty. There were tough times when I came close to discarding the furry rug in the early days. Of course I held firm and soldiered on despite the temptation to bring out the razor.
On the plus side maintaining the beard would have proven a tough challenge with all the training that awaits me with both a season of refereeing ahead as well as a handful of marathons on the agenda.
Should the opportunity ever arise give the beard a go. It will be a rewarding experience for you. Go on, I know you want to…….
