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

Welcome to the Walk, fellow TORn travelers! It's been a strange week for me and mine, so I apologize for being a day late with starting the thread. BIG congrats to Delrond for making it There And Back Again last week - woohoo!

How go your travels this week?

My progress:
Miles covered this week: 4
Cumulative miles: 759
Goal: There and Back Again!

Ugh. Rain. 'Torrential' is the word that comes to mind. Between the kids being home from school and the weather, I didn't get much activity in. And now, my foot's complaining at me, so I'm taking it easy today as well. But we're drying out a bit since the weather's improved, so I'm hoping this next week will go better.

Beamer's progress:
Miles covered this week: 4
Cumulative miles: 766
Goal: Group Challenge

Missing school for 2-1/2 days, and her dance class last week, because of the floods really cut into Beamer's activity level. But we're getting back into things, so next week'll be better for her. Good thing, too; we're currently trudging through Mirkwood Forest - yeech!

I hope your foot calms down soon :} [In reply to] Can't Post

If you're going to struggle with a fussy foot, it's probably a good that it's happening when everything has slowed down because of the floods. You aren't getting much mileage anyway; but I hope your foot is better very soon.

I'm not surprised Beamer is frustrated with getting to her dance classes and other activities. If they're practicing for a performance later on, I'll bet they have a tight schedule to stick to.

I hope you feel better, m'dear and that the healing of those dessimated areas goes very quickly!

Thanks for keeping us on the road :D

*waves fondly to one and all!*

Miles covered: 18 miles

Rain, rain go away... [In reply to] Can't Post

Plenty of rain here, too, but no flooding, although the river behind the house did go over a little (thankfully, only on the opposite side, where the bank is a little lower than on our side). I still managed to get out, thanks to having to buy last-minute school supplies and other activities. I'm just resigned to getting wet.

Miles covered this week: 44
Cumulative miles: 1207
Goal: There and Back Again!
