Posted April 23, 2015. 4 miles straight up and 4 miles straight down, for an 8 mile total. But look at the elevation climb. Awesome run! I didn’t used to be able to walk, let alone run a hill like “Bulldog,” in the Santa Monica Mountains. All to say, if I can run straight up 4 miles, one day you’ll do all the things you want to do. Keep the Recovery Mindset! BeRelentless. Always thinking about my brothers and sisters still suffering with Lyme disease. Keep going. Keep going. Keep going. The road is hard and it is long, but you can make it!
