Calories and running

I am a 23 year old female and am 5'4. I weigh only weigh 110.5 pounds but still have a little bit of a belly. I run four miles a day five to six times per week. I know you're not supposed to eat less than 1200 calories per day when dieting, however, if I am exercising this amount and I eat 1200-1500 calories will my metabolism slow down and will I hit a weight loss plateau? Should I subtract the approximate amount of calories I burned from exercising from what I ate so that that number equals 1200? Or will my metabolism be fine as long as I am consuming 1200 calories? My basal metabolic rate is supposedly 1300...
