Stomach pain : Stomach pain with activity is a concern for circulation problems to the stomach, intestines, or the heart. Women often have stomach pain, instead of chest pain from heart problems. It can also be a stomach polyp or a Hiatal hernia which is often aggregated by running. See your doctor
