For the past few months, I’ve grown increasingly aware of a slight numbness in my lower right thigh that would spring up towards the end of a long run. By long run, I mean 10+ miles.

But I distinctly became aware of it as soon as I started venturing out on 16-milers organized through a local running group.

The sensation wasn’t too bothersome. It felt like your skin after you apply benzocaine to stop a mosquito bite from itching. To the touch, it was almost a bit warm and dull. It was always in the same place: the outer right thigh, from mid-quadracep down to just above my knee.
