Some people have said that calf compression sleeves or socks help with shin splints. I enjoy them for 5K's to half's, but nothing longer to avoid blood pooling in the feet. They can be expensive ($30-$50), but I feel better when I wear them. Probably just mental, though.
If you are a runner, it doesn't matter how far or how fast. It doesn't matter if today is your first day or if you've been running for twenty years. There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run." J Bingham
