truly reassuring to know this numbness condition is not just me. i am just returning to the activity after a year+ layoff due to a string of injuries. although i previously had experienced the numbness in my right foot described so accurately by many here, i have been scared to death that this numbness was the same old injuries creeping back into my routine. strange. there is no pain associated with my numb foot but as some have described here i do experience either tight calf muscles or hamstring tightness prior to most episodes. like many here i know i do not stretch as well as i should prior to running but i'm going to start.
