I run like a crazy man and have ever since I got down to 220lbs.
Three things helped me overcome joint pain.
1) Good running shoes. Try them for walking. They may just help. Especially the ones for heavy set people (e.g. Mizuno Wave Creation).
2) Oily fish. Salmon, sardines, trout, mackeral. Or if you can't stomach the fish, fish oil tablets with omega 3.
3) Glucosamine chondroitin supplements.
Ultimately weight loss helps a lot too!
