I get a pain that comes and goes in the back of my shoulder and lower neck when running sometimes. I run about 30 miles a week any ideas on what may be going on. I would love to find a way to put an end to this

Maybe it's your posture. You should be standing erect but leaning slightly forward. Your shoulders, neck, and worsts/hands should be relaxed. Also pay attention to your breathing. You should not be straining or holding your breath. If it continue you might want to have your doctor take a look.
