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

Welcome to the Walk to Rivendell and Beyond! Our There and Back Again challenge (see links below) is moving along, and our TORn walkers, runners, bikers, dancers and so on are making it happen. So here's an invitation to those of you who've made exercise-related resolutions: join us on the Walk! Choose your favorite route through Middle Earth and your exercise, join in on the challenge, use the links below to convert your activity each week to miles, and watch how far you travel!

There and Back Again
Group Challenge Progress

Cumulative miles: 10646.34
Miles along the journey: 709.76
Miles out of Rivendell: 312.76

We're on the forest trail in Mirkwood. Keeping very much on the trail. No deviations to the right or left. Not even a toe off the trail, nosirree, not nohow!

My progress:
Miles covered this week: 0
Cumulative miles: 437
Goal: There and Back Again!

I got in some good mileage before Christmas, but over the holidays, I succumbed to the busyness of the season. sigh. Which means I missed a couple of folks who dropped in. So I'll take the time now to say, “Hi, silneldor and JRandomRohirrim! Sorry I missed you and stop by again soon!”

Beamer's progress:
Miles covered this week: 5
Cumulative miles: 421
Goal: Group Challenge

Beamer's back in dance classes after her Winter break, and with the change in semesters, she's now in PE (physical education), so she'll be getting some more activity each week - yay!
