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

Welcome, TORn walkers, striders, runners, bikers, swimmers, renovators, wood choppers, dancers, gardeners, hikers, box movers, roller bladers and more, to a milestone week at the Walk to Rivendell. We've made it There, and Back Again!

Our Group Challenge started two years ago, just before Bilbo's birthday in 2011, with the goal of accumulating enough miles to get Bilbo and all his traveling companions all the way through their 2000+ mile journey in The Hobbit by the premiere of the second Hobbit movie. We've traveled over 17,000 miles as a group, in more ways than I listed above. Big thanks to all 36 TORn Folk who contributed to the Group Challenge; whether it was 2 or 2000 miles!

There and Back Again
Group Challenge Progress

Miles reported last week: 207.06 (plus gramma's additional 10 from the week before!)
Cumulative miles: 17225.37
Miles along the journey: 2,077.42
We made it to Bag End!

While the Group Challenge is done, our journeys still go on and on. Anyone who wants to can continue with the individual challenges; after all, we're still awaiting the arrival of two more Hobbit movies! Not to mention how much fun it is to celebrate with you when you reach a landmark!

My progress:
Miles covered this week: 5
Cumulative miles: 745
Goal: There and Back Again!

I'll be happy when the back-to-school flurry of meetings calms back down and I can, oh, I don't know, get some exercise! Just a bit frustrated there...

Beamer's progress:
Miles covered this week: 10
Cumulative miles: 752
Goal: Group Challenge

Between PE and dance (in an after-school program and at the dance studio), Beamer's getting more exercise. Now, if she can just get herself organized with schoolwork, it'll be a good year!
