The meniscus functions as a load bearing shock absorber to the knee. Assuming your tear was medial this will accelerate any underlying degenerative condition and can predispose you to early arthritic involvement. Most literature out there would support this statement so disagree with Dr. Ayres on this regard. There are many alternatives to running as this long term is not going to be the best exercise for your knee. We were given a brain so we didn't have to outrun the dinasours. We are not meant for running. Would advise alternative cardio activities for longterm health of your knee such as swimming or biking.

Get tested: If you have high risk sexual behavior or use IV illicit drugs, get tested. Don't wait for symptoms because you might not have them until really late. Only one lymph node is not very dangerous but i would have a consultation with the physician to be on the safe side.
