    When I read your post, my original thought was patellar tendonitis. 90% chance caused by shoes. Read my responses to shotfighter in his running thread about shoes if you want. That bump just below the knee is where that tendon inserts.

    Thanks, I started running on the balls of my feet for more speed + power and I don't have that problem anymore. Which leads me to believe it is indeed caused by shoes.
