Walk to Rivendell - and Beyond! Can't Post

Greetings, fellow TORn Walkers, to the official start of the Walk with the Fellowship Challenge! This year, the invitation is to be active while following in the footsteps of Frodo and the rest of the Fellowship of the Ring. Participation is simple: choose the part of the Fellowship's journey that you would like to follow (see the Eowyn Challenge link in the Resources section below for many options), pick your favorite type(s) of exercise*, grab a Walk buddy (or more) if you'd like, and check in on the Walk to Rivendell thread to report your progress. There is no set group challenge other than to encourage each other on our journeys. Though, as it happens, at least five of us are starting in the same place Frodo did, with the 458-mile journey from Bag End to Rivendell.

A prosperous journey to us all!

*Types of exercise: there are no exercise police here! TORn Folk have walked, run, biked, swum, rowed, danced, chopped wood, done gardening, renovated homes, decluttered, moved a library, and more (much more!) as ways of accumulating mileage. Fellow TORn member NottaSackville gave us a wonderful chart of mileage equivalents to help you track your activity. It's in the Resources section below.


My progress:
Miles covered this week: 11
Cumulative miles: 11
Goal: Bag End to Rivendell

It's supper in a birch grove with the Hobbits for me. We're just into Tookland, having crossed the Brandywine Bridge; and Hobbiton has passed from view. Here on Earth, my view is of snow outside as I put in some miles on Bill the Treadmill. I cleaned off the ergo keyboard, set up my laptop and mouse, and am typing along at 1.5 mph. Wink

Only 447 miles to Rivendell!

The Eowyn Challenge Useful links, including mileage charts compiled by the late Karen Wynn Fonstad, are on the Tools page.
grammaboodawg's awesome site includes helpful activity conversion charts, mileages for Bilbo's Hobbitty journey home, and the Walk to Rivendell's TORn-up Postcards
Notta's Super-Duper Walking-Equivalents Chart
Eowyn Challenge Login Page is useful for keeping track of mileage, though be sure to keep a backup record, in case Warg attack, Wizard-induced blizzard, or other fell calamity causes the Shields page to crash.

The Eowyn Challenge/Walk to Rivendell - and Beyond! is a Middle-Earth-related fitness group that began in March 2003, and has been going on with walkers around the world ever since. TORn's Walk is open to all people and healthy types of activity.
