Absolutely, as long as you have no injuries that makes running uncomfortable. Start by investing in a good pair of supportive running shoes. Then begin by starting to walk at a fast pace and introduce a light jog for a few minutes then back to walking. Eventually the running will take over the walking. Try this first, walk for three minutes and then light jog for two minutes. After a while, and when you feel stronger, reduce your walk time to two minutes and run for three minutes.
