#5000MilesIn2022 and #10Everestsin2022

I started a little slow this year.

By the 10th of February last year, I had cycled 541 miles with 34,687 feet climbed.

Here it is the 10th of February ... and this year I've only cycled 370 miles with 20,279 feet climbed. Not even 1 Everest.

There are various reasons for my slow start this year. I won't go into them. Honestly, 370 miles with 20,279 feet elevation gain in a Colorado winter isn't really all that bad for an old couch potato such as myself.

I'm sure at some point I'll catch up. If not, I'll still ride more than most people.

I decided to leave my Strava mileage goal for the year at 5,000 miles this year. I lowered my climbing goal to 290,320 feet. (#10Everestsin2022).

At the moment, I'm 190.7 miles behind and 12,333 feet behind. Again, I'm sure I'll catch up.

For what it is worth ... I'm also behind last year's brewing.

Last year by this time, I'd brewed 5 batches with a total 26 gallons. This year, I've brewed only twice with a total of 10 gallons.

I don't really expect to catch up on that, but we'll see. I probably should drink less anyway.

I also am not blogging as much so far this year. Last year, by the 10th of February, I had posted 9 articles. 

This is only my 6th pst of 2022. 

Oh well ... I'm pretty sure no one cares if I catch up on blogging or not.

One thing I'm ahead on is my #GCCUSA fund raising. 

I've already raised over $500, which means I've earned my 2022 jersey already. Of course the GCC doesn't send those out until much later in the year, but I can be patient.
