PM run a couple of hours after dinner. Felt sluggish with the food churning in my tummy. Good to get out though.

I played a few full-court 5 on 5 basketball games at the Worthington Industries gym with some co-workers and ran on the treadmill by the court in between games.  Good to get some lateral movements, quick acceleration/deceleration, etc.

Feeling a sore throat coming on...hopefully running doesn't make it worse.

1 mile on fairly flat, newly marked section of the trail (with the wheel) in 4:55. I was running with a little wind at my back.
