    Not exactly *running* crew but I used to not be able to run a mile now I'm running biweekly 5ks :wavey:
    Got this advice from this forum, Asics Kayano 13's.
    Fixed my stride and the natural arch gives me really great dorsiflexion that i wouldn't have had without the shoe training my foot.

    Go to a good running store and get properly fitted. Every one has a different foot shape and stride. If you have a Fleet Feet near you that should do just fine.

    ur running more than me right now... i got it to 3x week and i was able to maintain my weight eating 4-5k/day...

    running always humbles me since my bones are heavy esp. after a heavy squat day...

    Nike Air Max 360's Expensive, but worth it.

    I have a pair of these.

    Go to a real running store- not footlocker crap- and get fitted. Seriously. It will be the best thing you've ever done for your feet/knees. Everyone recommending shoes is great, but you need to get something specific to your foot, how it turns in or out, how you land, etc.

    New Balance, Saucony and Asics are great running shoes, do not buy Nike, Reebok or Adidas

    That's a blanket statement which while true for you may not be true for others. It's a totally individual thing.
