Hey there! Secondhand Took here. It’s been awhile since my last post (getting close to a year now actually). There’s a lot I want to say, and a lot I’ll probably save for later. For now, let’s just get back on track (something I’m currently working on myself) and talk about that ol’ “Journey to Mordor” business.
It’s been about a month since I started getting back into exercise, or more specifically, running. In an effort to “gamify” my experience, I decided to compare my miles with that of Frodo’s Journey to Mordor – beginning the night he leaves Bag End and his eventual arrival to Mount Doom. Last time, I had just left Hobbiton behind as the lamps began to shine in the darkness, a peculiar fox just miles away. Since then, some more interesting characters have crossed my path.
