As a road runner, I also get that pain if I run on the side of the road instead of the sidewalk. This is because the side of the road is sloped so the water will drain into the sewer. So maybe its just because you were doing a lot of running on uneven, sloped surfaces.
Me too RE the shoes. I'm a supinator and even the slightest amount of stability/control in a shoe kills my inner knee.

How's the rehab, r2? Still weak as a kitten? If I came to your house and slapped you right know, could you defend yourself?
