    Does the pain stop? Are you running on a sloped road? Do you warm up
    first before steady running? How long have you been running? Which brand
    shoes are you wearing? What surface are you running on? Do you run in the
    am, just after rising? Are you wearing running tights? How old are you?
    Does the pain stop when you stop running? Sorry for the flurry of
    questions. I just need some more info to see if I can help point you in
    the right direction. Feel free to email me if you like. Good Luck
