On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office. But you will wish that you'd spent more time running. Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.

.I'm wondering if my increase in mileage might have something to do with it, too. I stayed at about the same mileage for several months, only starting to increase in the last couple, in preparation for the Riverbank Run 25k in May.
I think your mileage increase looks fairly safe. Your aggregate weekly %increase from Jan 8 (14.8) thru your recent peak (29.3) was 6.4% (I had to use logarithms to figure that one out. Fun!).
I forwarded a link to your post to a buddy of mine who is a podiatrist. Maybe he'll have some insight...
Every shoe I have ever loved has started giving me issues by the time I hit 225 miles or so. Like clockwork.
BTW...logarithms AND trombone? You really ARE a geek, aren't you?!
The two go hand-in-hand... I've known a lot of trombone players, and nearly all were geeks.
Unfortunately (for me), podiatrist friend is in Grand Rapids. Which doesn't help me, but may help you and other western Michigan RAer's, I suppose.
Now that sucks. I assumed that at 222 you were still in the clear.
The second pair thing is actually a good idea. In a higher mileage era, I used to alternate two pairs. The rest time in between runs allows the midsole to decompress, so you should be able to get more mileage per shoe.
I'm still annoyed that I go through shoes so fast. That was one reason I bought the 767--it's significantly cheaper than the 1222 and I couldn't afford to keep buying $135 shoes after such relatively short mileage.
