I've been growing my 'stache for a little over a week and I've got to say that I'm relatively pleased with the results thus far. I can remember the first year I participated in MOvember, back in 2007, and most people didn't know I was growing a mustache until the third week. Pretty lame.
But this year, I've had a few coworkers comment on my growth within the first week of growth, which I will consider a small victory.
Another victory is that the above picture was taken without the performance-enhancing techniques (i.e. mascara on the lip whiskers).
And, probably the biggest victory of all, I reached my personal fund-raising goal of $300 within the first week of MOvember. I have the most generous group of friends and family. I would like to thank my Wife, my Mom, my Mother-in-Law, my cousin Darcey, and my aunt Linda for their donations. You guys are the greatest.
If you would like to donate to my mustache (and to prostate and testicular cancer research), please go HERE. My team, MOrthern Colorado, has a goal to raise $1000, so while I've reached my personal goal, I'd still like to get my team to our goal.
Thank you for your continued support in this journey to raise awareness for men's health.
