IMO - try different things out and see what works for you!
2 years ago, when I was running 5 times a week, i ran slowly and barely above a shuffle so i could go the distance ... I ended up with a stress fracture, going to quickly to hard.
Now ... im only at 3 miles in a month. I started walking to get back into shape 3 months ago, 2 months ago, was running walking 3 times a week only a mile. A month ago, I was running one mile and have increased to 3 miles just this last saturday.
Slow and steady for me. Quiet feet, and pulling my shoulders back (this is the big one) to open my airways and helps immensely with breathing.
But again, thats me. Try different routes, times of day, different foods before you eat for your pre workout meal. Clothing and shoes as well ...
find what fits you. So you can enjoy it as long as possible.
