“You have to grow you hair and beard like Forrest Gump!”
There is no escaping that this expedition draws a lot of similarities to the run that Forrest Gump undertook in the 1994 classic film that is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.
While growing a beard is nothing new and is going through a fashionable resurgence there is a growing call for me to replicate the wild and unruly Forrest Gump style we all know and love.
However the practicalities are not overwhelmingly appealing to someone who is going to have to endure intense heat, humidity and the lack of washing facilities. Also for someone who is apparently considered vain…(?) the look is not considered a winner…
So, I am going to leave it to fate and you to decide. If there is an overwhelming demand to create a hairy runner then I will comply… All in the name of charity.
