Per James, today:
I told him from the start it was hilly. He said, “Noooo, it’s not hilly, it’s flat!”
If I complete my goal of 20 miles during this run, I will have climbed almost 2000 feet… and if he completes his 50K, he will have climbed about 3500 feet.
So there ya go. It’s hilly. Because everywhere you go in the Pacific Northwest is hilly.
