slight frustration

7 yrs ago I ran in a race and was doing SO well that when my knee really started to hurt I did not stop. Not the kinda pain that's bothersome and you think 'huh; I wonder what's going on' that was the mile or two before. It was really really hurting -but I was almost done, and did not want to stop. 
Now I wish I would've stopped and just walked my knee is ridiculous and acts up from time to time usually after 5 miles it starts to feel tender while running but I can deal with it no biggie. 
Today I made it 2 miles 2.MILES? and it started hurting I stopped and it's still bugging me HOURS later!
I can't figure out if I need new shoes or if it's because of running roadside where it's not exactly level
the thing is I've worn these shoes for miles and had no problem, and I run roadside quite frequently-
So what in the world could it be and how can I fix it!!??

Have you tried wearing a knee brace?
I have really sensitive feet and sometimes I have to wrap them in medical tape when I run. I don't think you need to stop running, but give your knee a little help.

Also! Try a little tylenol about 30 minutes before you head out. Hope things get better soon!
