See below: You need to see a physical therapist who can get you into a proper stretching routine. You also need a proper orthotic to control your foot motion.

Several things:: Chronic fatigue of the tendon, tendinitis - one needs to pre-stretch prior to running, drink plenty of fluids and see your foot doctor specializing in the sports medicine to assess for the proper foot function and alignment.
