    risk to joints is not as bad as fear mongers would have you believe. see here

    if you want to run, run. start slow, get proper shoes, take rest days.
    if you don't want to run, walk or zumba or ellipical or other things you find fun.

    Several of the doctors in your link talk about excess weight being bad for runners' knees. While the risk may not be that high for people at "healthy" weights, that's not what's under discussion here.
