I am off at the beginning of April for a week with work, providing Brexit does not ground all the flights.

But what should I do or see in the evening? going to take my running gear and am staying near the Whitehouse

As well as the above if I went again I would visit the "annex" to the air and space museum near Dulles, it opened mere months after our visit:

We also did a (very easy) organised bike tour of the main monuments, and the odd thing was out of the dozen or so of us on the tour, the four Brits seemed to know more US history than the locals.

In that case I'd probably make sure I did a run round the National Mall - it is about 4 miles around and has many of the iconic DC sights.
