A "tightness"...well...I'm no expert, but make sure you are running heel/toe heel/toe, because I think running on the balls of your feet could cause tightness in the front calf area...otherwise, if it's muscle tightness (not sure what other kind it could be
) I would try to isolate the tight area in a stretch after you get warmed up a bit...also stretch it after you are finished running. Sounds like a difficult muscle to isolate with a stretch, but if you put your toe in the ground and put resistance at a certain angle, you should be able to get it.
I'm not a sports doctor but I did stay at a Holliday Inn last night...
