The downtown stations are close together, so you might think that with a 1 minute or longer dwell at each station you would have a chance. But the gotcha is, the serpentining exits mean that it will almost always be two or more minutes entering and exiting each station.

I'm with Will... Friendship to Takoma. That's a 35 minute or so train ride, and shortcutting the U while running could do it, it's 4.4 miles by my pedometer.

There's a metrobus that goes from Friendship to Takoma, but really, walking is about the same speed or a little faster at rush hour. I have walked that whole route in about 75 minutes, and I know the bus in rush hour can take more time than that. All those stops, all the traffic.
