Day 38 -- A New Look

Having worn a beard for almost all of the last 11 or 12 years, I went and shaved it off the other day. This is actually the second time I've tried this (hence "almost all") but the last time was during the summer. What was I thinking? I didn't have any incentive to keep shaving, and I didn't. I made it eight days. So the over/under line for this new state of beardlessness is eight days. Place your bets now.

I ran 5.3 miles today. That took me reasonably near Ephrata, PA, where I took the opportunity to visit the Ephrata Cloister. This is me, standing in front of the Cloister's academy.
