    So Steve Kamb from Nerd Fitness has put together this awesome challenge that involves walking to Mordor (Lord of the Rings).

    The group spreadsheet is here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...JMXJwT1E#gid=0

    I recommend reading his blog post first to learn more about this killer challenge: A Hobbit's Guide to Walking | Nerd Fitness

    I like the idea! Already doing much the same for another challenge here on MDA--all except the barefoot stuff, that is. I've been tracking my walks since November, and come to think of it I've actually listened to the whole set of LotR and Silmarillion audiobooks in the process. Have to add it all up and see how far I've made it!

    Is that really 3,664 miles total?

    Now I know why it took 3 really long movies!
    And why Randal was right... 3 really long movies about walking.

    Started today. 2.5 miles, in the rain. Without an umbrella. Whoops.

    That sounds EXACTLY rigth for some reason.
    The walk to Mordor was fraught with hardships you know.

    I'll get there about 9 years after the rest of you.

    That's what I told myself. Did Frodo have an umbrella? Hell, no. Sure, they had hooded cloaks, but I bet those were no fun in the rain.

    My faux-vibrams got all squishy.

    Serious hardships!

    This seriously channels my inner geek. It definitely gives me something to look forward to when I'm walking.
