I am a nerd.
I’m also overweight.
I came across this interview with Jay Lake and Elizabeth Bear on Shrink Geek and when I read it learned about Eowyn Challenge. This is so incredibly full of awesome. I think it has inspired me to get off my butt and start exercising again.
So basically you get to walk to Mordor, or Rivendell or wherever you want from Tolkein’s books. How cool is that?
I haven’t planned out my route yet or decided who I’m going to follow, but I am definitely going to do this. I’m going to get an audiobook version of Lord of the Rings (or The Hobbit, I haven’t decided which path I’m going to take yet) and listen to it as I go. I’ll be using my stationary bike rather than walking (winter is coming dudes) and I think this will be lots of fun.
Care to join me? C’mon, you know you want to.
I’ll have my route planned and hopefully audiobook in hand and be good to start Monday. I’d love it if you were coming along with me.
