Miles 1-2 is a gradual incline with that little dip in the middle.
Weirdly, my favorite part of this loop is mile 2-3 because...well...it has the most challenging hill and I get to run in the grass for some of it?? Maybe because I know I'm coming to the end?

Whoops. One more steep one.
4 hills in under 4 miles. Is that why my time sits right around 10min/mile all the time?? I hope so.
It sure beats running on one of these:
