About Hill & Dale

Hill & Dale, short for “up hill and down dale,” literally means mountains and valleys (thus the logo I created). I first discovered this expression on the United States Running Streak Association website, but I now recognize that I’ve read it before in the Scriptures.

“If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there,” writes the psalmist. “Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me,” adds David in the 23rd psalm.

“Thou art there.” Whether I’m slowly scaling a sublime mountain or tumbling rapidly into a foreboding valley, God is there. Supernatural assurance for the summits and the ravines.

Hill & Dale explores the convergence of running and spiritual formation.
