Only if you buy bad shoes or if you have a degenerative disease. See Wolf's law for reasons why jogging is good.M.Ed. Ex Phys

Do your knees bother you now?
I would say go ahead and jog on a soft surface if you can. I weigh 35lbs more than you and I run 35 - 40 miles a week and no knee problems so far but I run on soft dirt/grass.

I believe it all depends on where you run if I was you I would run on dirt, grass, or if a local school has a track I would run there pavement and concrete can really eat up the knees over time

very true. i was referring to jogging on concrete surfaces and such w/adequate footwear. i would suppose that depends on genetics, no?

I was an avid runner through my 30s and early 40s but always stayed on grass or when indoors used a low impact trainer such as the elliptical. I recall the few occasions I ran on ashpalt or wet beach sand(felt like concrete) that my knees/legs would be sore for hours afterwards.
I used cross trainer shoes with Dr. Scholls or similar cushioned implants inside. The ones designed for runners.
