I would strongly advise speaking with a health care practioner about that. It could be something quite simple but it would be an excellent idea to rule out anything more serious. After all, many times when you are being checked out by a doctor they will ask you if you are feeling any pain or numbness. Not all precursors to injury are painful. A pinched nerve brought on by running could show itself in the form of numbness or tingling.
Get checked out when you can to make sure it isn't something more serious that is in the easily correctable stage.
Is it your shoes? Did you get new shoes recently? When this happened to me it was because my shoes were too tight.:( Once I broke them in I was fine...but the salesperson who sold me my shoes told me that I should never have to break in running shoes...and the next time that happens to return the shoes immediately because they're not a good fit.

Hey all you runners out there! I am about 6 weeks into my training program and for the past 2 weeks I have noticed that at about 25-30 minutes in, my one leg starts to go numb from about the knee down more concentrated around my foot. I don't feel any discomfort and do quite a bit of stretching. Any suggestions?
