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

Welcome, fellow TORn Travelers, to another update on the Walk to Rivendell, the place where we turn running, walking, biking, swimming, gardening, dancing and other active pursuits into journeys through Middle Earth. So... how have your journeys been this past week?

There and Back Again
Group Challenge Progress

Miles covered last week: 162.2 (woohoo!)
Cumulative miles: 9691.44
Miles along the journey: 646.1
Miles out of Rivendell: 249.1

It's misty and fall-like as we continue our ride north through the grasslands next to Mirkwood. brrr! I inadvertently left out one of our regular Challenge participants in last week's recap of where we're all at: Happy Hobbitess is currently on the Forest Trail in Mirkwood. I'm sorry, HH; I didn't see you there in that tangle of trees!

My progress:
Miles covered this week: 8
Cumulative miles: 381
Goal: There and Back Again!

Better mileage for me this week, and I'm loving it! Now, I just need to continue building on it... After all, I'm nearly to Rivendell!

Beamer's progress:
Miles covered this week: 1
Cumulative miles: 389
Goal: Group Challenge

And so is Beamer! Her performance went well. She's taken to heart the advice to slow down when delivering her lines, thankfully. And one of the first things she said to me after was to ask for a post-performance treat of ice cream!
