I don't know when or how I first stumbled upon it, but the Walk to Rivendell challenge has been something I've known about for years now. After attempting and failing C25K three different times, I decided that running a race (eugh—running) was never something that was going to appeal to me.
But taking the One Ring of Power to Mt. Dûm with Frodo and Sam? Right up my alley!
I just completed the first leg of the challenge: getting from Hobbiton to Rivendell (on our stationary exercise bike). I'll be posting my progress every time I make a significant milepost like this, with help of a handy-dandy graphic. My progress is the light blue dotted line, in case that wasn't obvious.
