Walk to Rivendell and Beyond: There and Back Again Challenge! Can't Post

Welcome to another week of the Walk to Rivendell, all you energetic TORnFolk! Our Challenge is moving right along; with a good group effort, we may break 10,000 miles by the end of October. Life has been busy here in Northern Colorado; Fall descended on us this past week, rather suddenly and completely (in keeping with our usual pattern; the only difference is in which part of September or October it hits). Hmmm... cool weather, need to stay warm – perfect excuse to get moving!

And, ImetLegolas and anyone else lurking about: feel free to join in!

There and Back Again
Group Challenge Progress

Miles covered last week: 118.5
Cumulative miles: 9529.24
Miles along the journey: 635.28
Miles out of Rivendell: 238.28

In addition to letting everyone know that we're still riding through the grasslands next to Mirkwood, I though it would be fun to recap where our There and Back Again Challenge regulars are. At this point, grammaboodawg has met herself coming and going west of Mirkwood, Arwen's Daughter is in a soggy barrel race with the dwarves, Delrond is sprinting toward the Battle of the Five Armies, Beamer and I are approaching Rivendell, which excellent libraries ShyElf has just left, Alassea Eruvande is about to work a riddle game, bearagorn and Iolani are on their way to Beorn's, and silneldor's gone and wandered off with Gandalf and Bilbo's nephew, Frodo. Whew!

My progress:
Miles covered this week: 4
Cumulative miles: 373
Goal: There and Back Again!
Ohh, I need miles. For my own well-being, I need treadmill and rowing time. At least I got a few this week, but I've been set back by a headache and two lousy nights of sleep. I can always tell when I'm just too tired: I keep setting off the safety stop feature on the treadmill. Next week will be better!

Beamer's progress:
Miles covered this week: 3
Cumulative miles: 388
Goal: Group Challenge
Oh, Beamer – my own Banquo. Her performance is next Wednesday. I haven't figured out a mileage conversion for performances; there should be one, though. The one thing I know for sure is that she'll be hungry after she's done her acting bit, from burning those calories!
