Don't Always Blame Running

I have a tinge in my knee that comes and goes.  It starts soon in to my run, and can stay or get worse throughout the run.  When this knee pain befalls, I usually go through several weeks of modifying my gait and my shoes, until I find the right combination, and it goes away.

I also battle it by changing sides of the road when possible, because it is mostly on the inside leg when I run on crowned roads.

However, recently I realized that this knee pain is caused by a pair of shoes I sometimes wear to work.  When I wear these shoes, even for one day, I develop knee pain when I run.  Shelving this pair allows me to run with no knee pain.

Don't always blame running.  Sometimes running is the stress that exposes underlying issues.
