Is the start of a bunion the death knell for my running?

I have been running for about 10 years, wear custom built orthotics because of flat feet and have had no injuries. This summer however I have noticed that I may have the start of a bunion. Does this mean my running days are over? I'm not hard core - I do around 2 runs a week ranging from half to 1 hour.

I have a friend with mild bunions who runs regularly without any problems - I think she just chose her running shoes with care.

I have bunions and they don't affect my running at all, I run four to six times a week and the only thing that gets in my way are my dodgy knees! grin
