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

Another week, another update as we walk the roads of Middle Earth. How's the scenery where you are? Any new celebrations or challenges? And, for the fun of it, what's the most unique form of exercise you've ever enjoyed?

There and Back Again
Group Challenge Progress

Miles covered last week: 169.83
Cumulative miles: 10909.84
Miles along the journey: 727.32
Miles out of Rivendell: 330.32

Hi ho, hi ho, on the Forest Road we go! Okay, yes, wrong dwarves. I think we've been on the Forest Road so long now that everyone's starting to get a bit... well... loopy, for want of a better word. I distinctly saw Fili and Kili threatening to undo all of Dori's braids as he slept last night, Ori nervously egging them on. Bifur, thankfully, is a light sleeper, and he intervened in the nick of time, not that the boys understood him raining down curses in Old Dwarvish.

My progress:
Miles covered this week: 3
Cumulative miles: 444
Goal: There and Back Again!

Another errand-intensive week for me, as Beamer and I worked on her schooling. She's now taking two subjects at the online school and the rest at her brick-and-mortar school. So far so good, but I have a strong dislike of spending so much time in the car and sitting in meetings and not walking. sigh.

Beamer's progress:
Miles covered this week: 9
Cumulative miles: 438
Goal: Group Challenge

PE and dance for Beamer this past week, plus a mile when we went to the van Gogh exhibit and wandered the Denver Art Museum. The exhibit was exceptionally well-done and both kids made it through the whole exhibit fairly well, though I think my Hobbit survived because I was hugging him the entire time (he has some sensory issues; weight helps him stay calm).
