Thanks for all the comments and advice! Yesterday, I wore my shoe a little loser and the tingling didn't happen this time. So hopefully that will solve the problem!

Tingling in your feet or feeling like your toes have fallen asleep can be due to inflammation pressure against the nerves in you hip. This is more prominent in women as we tend to have wider hips and an uneven gait, maybe even a little hip roll in our running style. I'm guess that is the issue here since it is happening after you have been running for a while. The inflammation in the muscles in the hip press against the nerves that lead to the feet and toes. A couple things I have done that seem to be helping: I take an anti inflammatory before I run, I ice my hip or sit on an ice pack after I run, rub a anti inflammatory ointment into the muscles of my hip and hamstring area before a run, I do a couple hip opening exercises before I run long distances.

I had it too - usually 45 minutes in. Try loosening laces...if that doesn't help try switching shoes if it bothering you...There are 2-3 big nerves and many little nerves throughout the foot could be pressuring any of them

I just had my first fitting for running shoes on Monday. The salesperson told me about that nerve that runs there. I never thought about that being my problem.

It usually happens when my shoes are laced too tightly in one specific spot... I was told by the doctor that there is a nerve that runs through the top of the foot and that it is from pressure on the nerve from the laces... It does go away when I loosen them in that spot or change my lace pattern. I have to assume he was right...

Yep, same thing happens to me! Usually my last 3 toes on both feet and usually only happens when I am on my elliptical. And I have tried not wearing shoes and just really thick socks and it did not make a difference. WEIRD!

I have started my 2nd week of Couch 2 5K this week. Yesterday, about half-way through my routine, my right foot started to get tingly and then started to go to sleep. I just kept on running/walking for the rest of my time, and then I did a 5 min cool down. Once I got off the treadmill and started walking around on it, my foot felt normal. It just worried me a little bit because I used to be a ballerina and I've always had problems with my right knee. Has anyone had this happen to them? I plan to loosen my shoes next time to see if that helps. Just wondering if anyone had any ideas. Thanks!
