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

It's another opportunity for the good folk of TORn to support and encourage each other as we walk, bike, swim, and otherwise exercise our way around Middle Earth. As you'll see below in my progress note for the There and Back Again group challenge, we're about to reach our biggest milestone, about three months early. How should we celebrate? Victory lap? Gatorade over Gandalf's head? What say you? Wink

There and Back Again
Group Challenge Progress

Miles reported last week: 72.33
Cumulative miles: 17,008.31
Miles along the journey: 1968.89
Miles out of the Rivendell: 291.89

Can you believe it? We're less than 100 miles from Bag End! Doubling those miles to get both Bilbo and Gandalf there, our group should reach the end of our journey by Bilbo and Frodo's birthday. And this on a challenge we were hoping to finish by December this year. Woohoo!

My progress:
Miles covered this week: 8
Cumulative miles: 740
Goal: There and Back Again!

So the miles I've posted and the ones you're not seeing from the weeks I missed sharing Beamer and my stats include hikes, swimming, marching in a parade and, for Beamer, the return of PE and dance classes. Whew! Being back on school time is taking some getting used to, but I'm glad to have a regular schedule to rely on again. Now, I just need to work more activity into that schedule!

Beamer's progress:
Miles covered this week: 11
Cumulative miles: 742
Goal: Group Challenge
