I really don't know what to do with this run I discovered quite a few rows down in my knitting. It's about 5 rows and I just have a loop hanging out. I am knitting with the continental method on circular needles. Thanks so much!

You can use a crochet hook to bring it up row by row. Check out Amy's video on 'fixing mistakes' for a dropped stitch.

So,I finally found that video, but now do I have to rip out all the knitting I did after the run, or is there a way to "tack" it from the rear-it's at the top of his shorts and he'll always wear a shirt un-tucked with it.
Ugh-I just realized if I dropped one stitch, then my legs are going to be off. I really don't want to rip out about 9 rows :waah: I still knit so slowly......................

You can bring it up as far as you've got loose yarn to do so, maybe 3 rows or so. Then you can push the loop to the WS, thread a piece of yarn through it and weave in those ends. You won't be able tell once you're done and that stitch won't drop again. If you need the correct stitch count to move on to the next step, just inc a stitch where it would have been if you had been able to bring it all the way up.
