eowyn challenge

I took myself on a walk this morning and reached Minas Tirith for the third time, thus completing the outward leg of the hobbits’ journeys there and back again. Next I’m backtracking (magic reset button, I don’t have to walk back) to Rauros Falls, and taking the trip from there to Isengard with Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli, a journey of 484 miles. This is good. I’ve been typing “miles to Minas Tirith” for nearly nine hundred miles now, and my fingers will be pleased (if confused) to get to type “Isengard” for a while. :)

So I’ve walked 517 miles since January 4th, which is by far the most I’ve walked in such a short period of time over the last several years. I’ve mostly been managing around 500ish miles a year, with a total of…3229 miles around Middle Earth since April 2003. I need to figure out how to check my pedometer, though, ’cause Mom thinks it’s under-counting the distances, which is very possible, ’cause it’s counting them at right about 20 minute miles and I think I walk about 17.5 minute miles, or possibly a bit faster.

Now I will go shower, and then write a lot. :)

miles to Minas Tirith: 517

    I now get the ‘miles to Minas Tirith’ reference, (sorry, I just was turned on to your blog by one of my friends). I’m doing the same thing through my work this summer, so it’s nice to see someone else doing it too.

    Sadly, the program we are using uses kilometers for everything since they are based in Australia. I’m an American, we don’t compute kilometers. Every distance is measured in miles and time!
