>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 ??

She was not strong. She was valiant. Radiant. Brave and broken. The beauty she discovered in the aftermath was unparalleled to anything she had known before, because it had come at such a cost.
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.
