I went to your Sparkpage to get more info on you and it says you've lost 11 pounds. Great job so far!
As far as running goes, listen to your body. If you are a big guy I would suggest running on a softer surface like a running track or a grassy area. Concrete and asphalt are extremely hard on feet, shins, knees, hips and lower back, but you have to go where space is available.
Properly fitted shoes are key, pay the extra money for a good pair of shoes that fit your stride. Some people pronate (the foot rolls inward) when they walk, some people supinate (the foot rolls outward) when they walk, some people have high arches and some people have flat feet. This is why it's important to get properly fitted shoes.
Start slow. When I started my running program I walked 100 yards/jogged 100 yards and did that 10 times. The next time (2 days later) I did it 11 times, the next time after that I did it 12 times, etc... until I was conditioned to run.
Follow the programs listed below. You will be amazed at how fast you will improve.
Nothing tastes as good as healthy feels and looks.
