If I were to guess, I would say that it is possible that your ears may be sensitive to the wind that is blown back into your ear when you run.
 Seriously try putting sime cotton in your ear or a bit of ear putty or plugs to block the cool air from droning in on your ears.. sometimes that can really cause a pretty bad ear ache....
 Do you jog outside or on a treadmill?

Hum.. I usually run in a indoor running track. But you might be right, because I found it sometimes hurts when I am walking without a hat in winter.. I will try that out. Thanks!

My brother had sensitive ears like that and the wind or air blowing in would give him a earache.. Let us know if it works.... I am no Doctor but know people with this problem
