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

Greetings, all you TORn walkers, hikers, bikers, swimmers, lurkers and all, from the sunny Pacific Northwest! Yeah, I've been vacationing/visiting family/running around like crazy for the past couple weeks. How are things going for you?

Hi, delrond! Hi, Iolani! It's good to hear from you both! gramma, I hope you've been enjoying your time with your granddaughter!

My progress:
Miles covered (two weeks): 54
Cumulative miles: 1487
Goal: There and Back Again!

Beamer, my Hobbit and I have been doing a lot of walking here in Portland. Yes, that Portland, but my extended family's presence here long predates the hipness that is contemporary Portlandia in all its glory. Wink And we're leaving tomorrow to drive back home. sigh. It'll be good to be home, but this is a great city for walking and public transit - even with my young nephew and niece along. And moving at the speed of 7 and 3 years old can be exhausting! I just hope I keep this increased pace up once we're home again and the kids start school... next week...

Beamer's progress:
Miles covered (two weeks): 64
Cumulative miles: 1388
Goal: Group Challenge
