In brief: Inflammation

Inflammation of the patella due to overuse or repetitive motion.
Overuse injuries respond best with rest, ice and nsaids. Therapy helps with decreasing swelling and pain as well as improving strength and range of motion. Recurring tendinitis could be occurring due to needing to improve running form or perhaps needing orthotics.
