It sounds like it could be Morton's Neuroma. I would see a podiatrist. I wouldn't keep running on it until you get it checked out. Good luck!

The article FREEDOMSTAR pointed to is great! A couple of years ago I started getting serious tingling and burning in the toes (between first and third area) around mile 5 to 6. Sometimes it got painful and I would have to stop running. Did the Doc thing and they diagnoised Morton's neuroma with an expensive option of inserts. Instead of spending the $300 for orthodics I jimmied up some cushioning for my feet and kept a going! It never got worse, but I did take some months off that winter after the pain turned into the beginnings of Plantar Fascitis. With help from ice, a "shoe boots" I wore at night and good stretching and PT on the foot and toes, it never developed into anything serious. The best thing I did was get a shoe with a really roomy toe box, really roomy!! I also note any twinges or tingling I have in ANY pair of shoes (note: women wear heels and I teach so I stand, etc.). I also continued the stretching and icing as much as possible to keep the feet flexible.

All this to say it could be the beginnings of something more serious, so it would be wise to try some things to help offset anything worse later.

I am certainly no expert, but hope anything I say could be helpful.
