>Running 101>Left foot went numb at 3 mile mark
Dude, my foot/feet go numb on pretty much every run I do when it's 40 degrees or colder out. Usually around 20 minutes into my run and then after another 20 minutes or so of me running/wiggling my toes while running, they go un-numb. It's cold out, blood flow is directed to places that need it more then your toes. Stop freaking out. Run more.

....and presumably for it to be a cold issue both feet would be effected ??

Thats true. It's never the right foot.
I just find it weird that those 50 some-odd people on that forum ALL had it happen at the 3 mile mark. Regardless of their fitness levels.
I didn't read that thread... but regardless of fitness level... 3 miles (btw, you wrote 2.5 for yourself, so it's really "somewhere early on") means 20-35 minutes into it. It may be more about the time than the mile. Or not. Food for thought.
Im not really to the level where I can run 20 minutes past 3 miles, but when I get there Ill try it out and see if it goes away then.
So I should definitely keep running though?
Throw caution to the wind....go run a 5 miler. See if the numbness goes away before you're done.
