A:   Where in the shoulder are you getting most of the pain? I really dont think its the feet movement causing it when running, but the forward and backward motion of your arms when running. From my own personal experience ive seen many people with this type of pain complaining about a sore rotator cuff. Your best bet would be to make an appointment with a physiotherapist as soon as you can to strengthen that area. Icing the shoulder after running is very important as well and try to take some sort of anti-inflammatory such as ibuprofen.
