Most Fun Walking Incentive Ever!

Apparently, years and years ago, folks did a walking challenge in honor of the coming premiere of The Return of the King. They now have the walking distances for pretty much every journey in The Lord of the Rings.

I find this very appropriate, because Tolkien (like Lewis and many Oxford men and women) was a great lover of long walks and hikes.

But mostly, it’s just… such a fun plan. :)

Hmm. I wonder if you could do this with something like… I don’t know… Xenophon’s Anabasis. Or Jane Austen.
