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

Greetings from the Haunted Forest (Mirkwood... still), fellow TORn walkers, swimmers, remodelers, runners, cyclists and all! Whether your week of activity was spooky, fraught with peril or simply amusing, do tell! We'll miss you until December, Joe-M! Angharad73, your Fall sounds beautiful! And gramma, wow, shingling and car trouble miles; what a week!

My progress:
Miles covered this week: 12
Cumulative miles: 812
Goal: There and Back Again!

Beamer and I are still in Mirkwood on our way to Erebor, but I feel like I'm starting to make some progress. I'm slowly increasing my distance. So far, my foot's not complaining, so I'm cautiously optimistic.

Beamer's progress:
Miles covered this week: 10
Cumulative miles: 825
Goal: Group Challenge

I'm still up on the roof slinging shingles, chainsawing downed trees, and got some major walking in taking my Hobbity SUV in for new tires and stuff (about 5 mile walk round trip) and enjoying walking around the block (4 miles) at home as I oooo and aaaaahhhh at the tree colours.

Thank you so much for keeping us on the Road, Arandiel! I hope everyone is having a GREAT fall! Welcome to November! :}

Sorry I haven't been around lately! [In reply to] Can't Post

Work has been super busy. We are going for our ISO certification and I can't believe how much work this is for me. The worst part is we have an audit on Friday December 13th! Which means I cannot go to the midnight showing of DoS..... (got to have my wits about me the next day, can't be sleep deprived with my head in Middle Earth).

But... I was able to go to the World Wide Fan Event in Toronto today - and it was GREAT. All I can say is that I was particularly impressed with how PJ has handled the talking spiders. (he's so clever!)

I've tried to logue my mileage - I may have missed some here and there - but here we go:

Miles since my last post: 34
Cumulative miles: 168.5
Goal: There and Back again! -- Ha! I'll settle for just getting "There"! Tongue

Cheers!

"I wish it need not have happened in my time," said Frodo.

"So do I," said Gandalf, "and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us."

I'm a bit late... [In reply to] Can't Post

...to check in this week. Not that I have walked all that much last week (although it does seem to add up in the end), and there will be even less this week, with the way it's going at the moment (the weather was bad, and now I'm sick)...

Anyway, here is my progress for last week:

Miles covered: 32
Cumulative miles: 1438
Goal: There and Back Again!

Wow - busy lady! [In reply to] Can't Post

I hope the weather holds long enough for you to finish! I fear we may be sending a bit of weather your way later this week. Crazy

Stay safe, gramma!

No worries, ShyElf! [In reply to] Can't Post

I've been busy, too - this is the first time I've been able to visit the Message Boards midweek in far too long.

It's wonderful to hear from you, and Way to Go on the mileage!
