The pain is not that severe - just some general soreness that goes away as soon as I stop running and walk. I'm not usually sore after my run is over either, just during.

comment Is there a recommended running technique if you're overweight?
Well, the 12 miles is do-able physically (I mix in some walking right now still so it's not a huge effort) plus I've been playing competitive singles in tennis regularly for many years now so I'm still in "some" kind of shape - just trying to improve where I'm currently at. I know my body fairly well - enough to know when I'm pushing myself too hard.

Would taking glucosamine help with the joint pain at all or is that only meant for arthritic pain?

Thanks for those 2 video's - especially the dynamic stretching one. I do stretch before and after my runs but not like that video shows. Part of my reason for running (besides weight loss) is to improve my foot speed, cardiovascular endurance and leg strength for when I play tennis, so I have also incorporated a few 100 yard wind sprints into my routine.
