After this first encounter, the bird then turns around and flies from the runner back to the finish line, turns around again and flies back to the runner. The bird repeats the back and forth trips until the runner reaches the finish line.

How far does the bird travel from the be-ginning (including the distance traveled to the first encounter)?

Answer in units of km.
