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

It's exercise, it's Middle Earth; it's another week on the Walk! We're a day late this week (my apology; I've been a bit under the weather). But how go your journeys? Are you swimming through the Three Hunters' great run, or running through rain in the Trollshaws with Bilbo and company? Biking down the Anduin or walking to the Prancing Pony? Oh, and the There and Back Again Challenge is still going, too! (See the link below for details)

My There and Back Again progress:
Miles covered this week: 8.5
Cumulative miles: 789
Goal: There and Back Again!

I've got some catching up to do with Beamer. With the cooler weather, I'm hoping to get outside and work in the garden this weekend. The leaves won't rake themselves, after all! And it would be nice to get out of Mirkwood before the next Hobbit movie premiere!

Beamer's progress:
Miles covered this week: 13
Cumulative miles: 807
Goal: There and Back Again!

The extra dance classes at school really got Beamer moving during first quarter. They're done now, though, so she just has to one dance class each week, plus P.E.
