Tips for Running with Plantar Fasciitis?

I have plantar fasciitis that likes to come and go and has a mind of its own. I LOVE running, but PF can detail my plans. Anyone know of any tips to run with PF? Maybe just continue with IBUs and ice…?

I had the same problem a few years back. My podiatrist gave me a simple stretch to do, twice a day for 7 minutes, and it worked very well for me. You simply stand on a step or ledge of any kind and let your heels hang down for the duration. It feels uncomfortable at  first, then you get used to it after a few times. This got me back and running immediately. No drugs.
