A stereo field recording from June 4, 2017 in Washington D.C.

The run is ‘dedicated to creating a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams.’ At both the beginning and end of the recording there is the sound of a runner who blows Vuvuzela when he passes by the South Lawn.
