Eowyn Challenge.

Thanks to Di Francis, I came across this website:

It looks like a fun way to have a goal for exercise. There's even maps and things to mark your progress on. :D Now... to choose which journey I want to do. Anyone else want to join in with me?


"Walk, run, hike, bike, blade, swim - if you can measure the distance, you can do this challenge. Keep a log, and record your daily or weekly miles and the type of exercise. For walkers and hikers, you might want to invest in a walking meter, they look like wristwatches. Otherwise, you can estimate your distance at 1 mile for every 20 minutes of brisk walking on a flat surface. Our original suggested deadline was the opening of The Return of the King December 17, 2003. As this glorious day is now past, we are setting new goals, new times

If you would like to set a long term distance goal, choose any one of the following:
