Saturday Run - 60 min or 10 Miles

This Saturday lets run to the National Mall!  We will start up on the Roosevelt Island, run up Iwo Jima, into the Memorial Bridge and onto the Capitol (that's 9 miles round trip).  To add more mileage, you can hop on the Tidal Basin and Hains Point.

LOCATION:
Roosevelt Island Parking Lot. Use this map to locate the parking lot [GPS: 38°53'51.99"N 77° 4'3.24"W]. To help new people find the group, please meet in the middle of the parking lot. Please meet 10 min. before the start time.

PACE and MILEAGE:
All paces are welcome! We'll be doing an out and back route, so everyone will just turn around at the halfway time marker. We generally average from 8-12 min/miles and run an hour or a set distance. But, you can run any amount of time or mileage.  And if you need to walk, it's not a problem either, everyone needs to start somewhere!

PARKING:
Use this map to find parking in Rosslyn. There are parking lots at Roosevelt Island and above the Continental Lounge. There are also meters and pay garages.

DIRECTIONS:
For those of you driving to Roosevelt Island, please note that the parking lot is only accessible from the NORTHBOUND lane of GW parkway. You will see it right after the Roosevelt Bridge.

METRO:
Orange or blue to Rosslyn. From N. Moore St, turn left; right onto 19th St; cross Lynn St. and turn left; take the trail on the right just before the Key Bridge.

    Sorry I missed everyone today. Traffic was not on my side. Moving to DC soon so I won't have that problem much longer.

    Anytime past sunrise works for me! Happy to start whenever the group wants, though. Definitely going to have to back it up to avoid the parking snafu we had two weeks ago.

    I'm game for any time really... But if more people are willing to show up earlier than we should start earlier. The more the merrier right?

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
