I have plantar fasciitis and inserts, but my feet still hurt badly when I run. Is there anything else I can do like wrapping my arches before I run?

In brief: Combo treatment.
The more you can do together, the better: #1: supportive shoes.
#2: firm inserts or orthotics. #3: oral antiinflammatories (check with your doctor). #4: stretching your foot and calf. #5: icing (10 min at a time). You may also need physical therapy or cortisone injections.

In brief: Stretch
Plantar fasciitis can be caused by overuse.
You may need to refrain from running until your symptoms improve. In the interim, you should to stretch the plantar fascia and heel cords (achilles) anytime you are inactive for a while. This includes first thin the morning out of bed, anytime you have been sittting for a while.
