Saturday Run - 60 min. or Long Run

  • December 8, 2012 · 8:30 AM
  • Theodore Roosevelt Parking Lot

Please post how long you will be running and your pace in your rsvp.

LOCATION:
Roosevelt Island parking lot. There is no address that I know of; use this map to locate the parking lot. To help new people find the group, please meet in the middle of the parking lot.

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.

ROUTES:

DIRECTIONS:
For those of you driving, 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.

EXTRA PARKING:
If the lot is full, use this map to get back to Rosslyn. There's a small free lot above the Continental Lounge and one at Iwo Jima. There are also meters and pay garages.

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.

    Yes Stephan, with the training I'm doing the longer miles on Saturdays. This next Saturday I have a 12 mile run on my training. The more the better keeps us motivated during the longer runs!

    @ Julie I'm not able to message you from your profile. We were talking about the DC marathon in March with the long miles. My email is [masked].

      I don't mean to troll on your message but I'm interested in running the DC Marathon as well. Are you planning to get some longer miles on the weekends? I'd be interested in joining for extra miles before/after the Saturday morning group run as well as Sunday. Let me know if you want an additional running partner.

    Anyone from Belvoir area meeting for the run tomorrow?

    • Stephanie Jenderseck Ayala

      That would be great! What would be a good meeting spot? Something I can put in my GPS being I've only been here for a week and very unfamiliar.

    Hi! We'll run to the Capitol this week (Roos Island > Rosslyn > Iwo Jima > Memorial Bridge > Mall > Capitol). The out-and-back route I have posted is about 10 miles. Please adjust according to your training schedule.
