Roosevelt Island!

On Saturday morning, I went to Roosevelt Island for a run- I know, I'm probably one of the few people who makes a list of places I want to run in cities I visit haha. 

Roosevelt Island is between Rosslyn and Georgetown, so I had to run from the Rosslyn metro, along the highway, and across this bridge to get to the island. 

But it was totally worth it! I loved running on the trails and along the small bridges through the marsh. 

I had run around the island once when I finally ran into Teddy! And there were lots of good quotes on the stones around him. I'm not sure if you can read them all clearly, but my favorite is on the Youth stone. 


"Keep your eyes on the stars, but remember to keep your feet on the ground."

The island isn't very big, so I ran around 3 times and then made my way back through Georgetown to the metro. It was a fun morning and I completed one more thing on my bucket list before I leave!

What is your favorite quote?
