In brief: Strengthen....

Strengthening your hips, knees, and ankles will often make it easier to run without pain.
The best thing to do is see your doctor who may refer you to a physical therapist. One can also get exercises off the internet. Be sure to have well fitting shoes, proper arch support, and exercise on a flat, stable surface. If overweight, one should lose some weight... All of these ideas will help.

In brief: Running pains

Exercise is fantastic, but some exercises are tough on joints.
Running is one of them. A good family physician with training in sports medicine or an orthopedic physician should evaluate for the source of your dysfunction and determine if you can run safely by changing technique or footwear or running surface. They may recommend a physical therapist be involved.
