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

It's another week, another opportunity to see how far TORn has come as we turn the miles we walk/swim/bike/run/dance/etc. into miles traveled in Middle Earth!

There and Back Again
Group Challenge Progress

Miles reported last week: 340.41
Cumulative miles: 16,248.32
Miles along the journey: 1588.9
Miles from Beorn's: 135.9

Our progress has accelerated again, as Bilbo and Gandalf said good-bye to Beorn and have continued on the journey. With only two of them to divvy up our mileage, we've made it all the way to the tunnel under the Misty Mountains. Not scenic, but we'll be to Rivendell before long, and that must surely be a cheering thought!

My progress:
Miles covered this week: 14
Cumulative miles: 687
Goal: There and Back Again!

It's been a busy week as I get ready for another family trip (two weeks in Oregon). I'm planning on taking my pedometer to see if I can keep my mileage up (you're right, Angharad73 - it's quite a motivator!). I found out today that the sore spot on my shin that I earned rafting last month is a bone bruise - sore to the touch but not an activity limiter, so that's a relief, especially as I'm trying to keep my mileage heading up or at least staying steady.

Beamer's progress:
Miles covered this week: 8*
Cumulative miles: 667
Goal: Group Challenge

*Beamer's mileage for this past week will go up, after she lets me know how much hiking she's done this week at camp!
