onset of lower back stiffness whilst running
Buy a new mattress !
Alternatively get up earlier and stretch your back several times before you go.
Lower back pain is a very very common injury, but it is also complex, in that it can be both a sympton of another underlying cause, or be in an of itself the problem.
I would suggest that it is stiffening up overnight and takes a couple of hours activity to loosen off, a change of mattress (to orthopaedic or similar) may help.
