Today when I was going on my run I did my five minute warmup walk then within two minutes of running my foot started feeling sore like it was cramping up to the point where I didn't feel like it was safe to finish my run. Any experience with this and advice or ideas of why this happened?

What kind of shoes did you have on?

My normal running/workout shoes. They're nothing special, just non slip shoes with like a running shoe shape if that makes sense I had them for a job and don't have money to buy a new pair. But I've never had this problem before.

I don't know what it is but I had the same problem when I was in Army. I had all kinds of running shoes. I think I'm flat footed though

I had the same problem..they are two main causes in fact,first is the shoes..it is always good to choose flexible one but with enough material to absorb shock..second is the way u run..u must care,about ur back posture,ur arms balancing the movement,and finally ur foot..if u need more info about postures when running just google it

Ive had that problem before sometimes you can pull the muscles along your foot its not a serious issue just let it rest a day or so

It could be one of two problems, either plantar fasciitis or a strain in your bottom ligament. Either way rest up from the running for a few days. I tore my plantar and was out if action for 16 weeks and now I wear orthotics. You usually get heel pain with plantar fasciitis though. See how you go after a few days rest if it doesn't help, then get some advice from a doc. You can also strap your foot with strapping tape, but it is hard to explain. Good luck.

That was sooo long ago but they issued me some new balances and I've had reeboks classics and nikes.
