Hip discomfort while running

I am 59 years old.  I have been running for several years (30 to 40 miles per week).  Over the last several months I have noticed that my right hip starts to ache after 4 to 6 miles.  If I stop running for several minutes, the ache immediately goes away.  I begin running again and the ache gradually comes back.  The ache starts to become more of a pain when I reach 12 to 14 miles.  Palpating the hip produces no pain or discomfort at all.  No rotation or stretching causes any discomfort.  I have increased my stretching time and started taking OTC anti-inflammatory drugs to no avail.  I stopped running for a week without any change.  Any ideas?

Thank you in advance
