Catching up on #5000MilesIn2022
Today is the 22nd of May.
If you've been following my updates on my #5000MilesIn2022 goal, you know that my Strava mileage goal is 5,000 miles.
You also know that so far this year, I've been behind plan. As of the beginning of this month I was 30 miles behind plan.
To reach 5,000 miles, I need to average 12.7 miles per day. If I'm counting right, today is the 142nd day of the year.
To be "on plan" for my goal, I should be at 1945 miles today.

SheppyBrew Beer Names
So ... one of my favorite homebrew podcasts is the The Brülosophy Podcast.
One of their recent episodes ... Episode 232 | exBEERience: Naming Beers ... got me thinking about how I go about naming beers.
Apparently, not all homebrewers name all their beers, but I certainly do. Some of these names only make sense to me, but they all have at least some thought put them.
So ... what are some of the themes in my beer names?
Lots of my beers are named for my favorite sports teams ... lead, of course, by the Chicago Blackhawks.
Blackhawk Black Ale is pretty obvious. Tommy Hawk APA is named after the Blackhawks' mascot. Chelsea Dagger Pre-Prohibition Lager celebrates the Blackhawks with the song that plays after each of their goals.
I've also celebrated the Cubs' world series with Cubs Win! Munich Dunkel. And the Colorado Rockies making it to the world series with Rocktoberfest Lager.
I even named a beer based on my hatred of a football team: Pats Disliker New England Pale Ale.

Biking update ...
Today is May 1st.
Last year by May 1st, I'd ridden 1,689 miles and climbed 104,466 feet on my bikes.
This year, I'm still behind last year, but I think I'm catching up. So far this year, I've ridden 1,627 miles and climbed 88,448.
Last time I reported my cycling numbers, I was 108 behind "plan" to reach #5000MilesIn2022. Now I'm only 30 miles behind plan.
I was 8,327 feet behind plan to get to #10EverestsIn2022. Now, I'm 7,795 feet behind.
