MFS: Are you aware, like when you look in the mirror every morning, that your hair is fabulous?
“I don’t know that I realize it to such an extent, but yes, I am aware that I was blessed with my hair. I really don’t think about it too much, it just grows. There are plenty of girls in cross that have better hair than I do, but I don’t think any of the other guys do.
“The last haircut I got was in April, a run of the mill $20 haircut at a local barber in Redlands. Honestly, I only got it because it was so hot during the race. Even at home I just go wherever, I don’t have “a guy.” I usually just cut it as soon as the weather starts warming up, or when it becomes too annoying.
It’s only January and I already have a lot of hair as it is, so by this spring it could be really long. But I’m also not sure I’ll last that long.
“He really, actually does not think about his hair. I don’t think about his hair myself too much, but I did tell him the other day that he might want to go short again. Maybe with a little mohawk thing? The flowing locks are really nice in the winter, but he’s hot when he has short hair! Maybe a South American soccer player cut, maybe a scruffy-looking beard. But really, he doesn’t care about his hair and I really don’t care that much either. And that’s why it’s so good, it’s natural.”
