Running while overweight (For Randi Harper)

Can we have a thread about being overweight and running? Pretty please? I have questions. I have so many questions. And there's gotta be other overweight wannabe runners out there, right? Or people that were overweight runners at one point? I have scoured the internet, and I can't find the answers for the specific questions I'm looking for. Maybe because no one my size admits publicly that they want to run? I'm not sure.


Let's get to it! (And no mainpaging - we just don't need to go there.)

ETA - I thought it was a good picture - if someone doesn't like it, let me know and I'll take it down. Because I think we've all been in that spot (or something just like it).
