Short hills mileage

Good afternoon all,
For our first short hills Thursday workout of the year, I was asked about the mileage. I measured using Google Maps a while ago and I don't believe it accounts for elevation change, so these numbers are slight underestimates.

Each left hill is .1472 M each way, so .2944 round-trip.
For the right, it's .1118 M / .2236.
From art museum to the start of the hills (at the base) is .9879 M each way; 1.9758 round-trip.
Remember that for hill #10 on the right, we don't return to the base of the hills.

Therefore, TOTAL MILEAGE is left (.2944 * 5) + right (.2236 * 4.5) + 1.9758 = 4.454 M
For reference, Tuesday mileage is 4.4 M. TOTAL SHORT HILLS UPHILL is 1.295 M
