Excursion 1 involved a cab ride to the FDA in Silver Springs, MD where we walked OUTSIDE around the campus for a bit after our meeting (only to make our way back to our waiting ride, but still - counting it!). Excursion 2 was our annual lobbying on Capitol Hill in conjunction with our May board meeting. I was assigned to Massachusetts this year and escorted a very lovely member of our Board to various meetings where we lobbied for increased NIH funding, etc. etc. and Excursion 3 counts the MOST. I actually squeezed in time on Wednesday afternoon for a quick jog, and a nice post-workout stroll around the District. I saw lots of field trips, etc. and even did a little shopping. Hurrah!
