Many possibilities : There are a number of possibilities, from a stress fracture to a soft tissue injury. An exam and cray would likely go a long way in establishing the diagnosis. We would first check the over all alignment if the foot and even the appropriateness of the shoe you are using related to your foot.

Overuse: Pain after running can be caused by any number of overuse injuries. It's important to stretch thoroughly before and after any activity. Seek correct diagnosis and treatment for proper healing.

Systems review.: Kind of akin to your car not running right every-time you start it up. You need a systems review to determine the pain related problem.
