But I made two miles, barely, and my cardiopulmonary system seems to have figured out that it can keep breathing while I run a mile. On the way back, though, I only ran about half of it and walked the rest. The only reason I had the motivation to drag myself out there at all was because I remembered that today was the day I pass the doors to Moria.
And so I did. I am now 1.6 miles inside the mines. No sign yet of cave trolls.
121.4 miles to Lothlorien.
And now I have to go get cleaned up so I may venture forth and do what must be done today.
