If you go to a running shoe store, some of them have a treadmill and they’ll analyze your stride to determine the right shoes for you. Getting the right shoes makes a huge difference.

Not fat, just a tummy. Work on your posture a bit and do a moderately intense cross-fit type workout for 15 to 20 minutes 3 or 4 times a week. Stick with it for 2 or 3 months and you will look fantastic.
Here is an example.

How to stretch your hamstrings. These are tight on most people and can contribute to mechanical problems and knee pain.

If you don’t have a foam roller, use a Nalgene bottle.

Foam roller will do wonders to remove tightness in your IT band and relieve knee pain:

There are several things that can cause knee pain. If you’re just starting, it’s normal to experience soreness for a few days. If it takes a month for your knee pain to go away after a run, than something is not right. If you decide to run, ease into it. Go for a walk and then in the middle of the walk run for one minute or something like that.
Learn to stretch your hamstrings, hip flexors and your IT band. Search YouTube for videos that show how to stretch these muscles. Tightness in these areas can cause knee pain. Stretching AFTER running is more important than before.
One possibility: Iliotibial band syndrome

I don’t think you should let the conversation end on that point. Maybe send a follow up message and just let her know that you will keep her in your thoughts. Or stop by her place with some homemade soup or some flowers or some little thing like that.

[quote DarkSnow]Most people who look for help desire to be understood and to not be judged. Although I’m not sure how that could be worked into the website title.
For example, HelpWithUnderstanding.com seems long to me.[/quote]
Yes, I’d prefer to keep the domain name as short as possible.
[quote DarkSnow]Of that list, I like The Help Place the best. Out of curiosity, what are you doing it for? Something similar to here? It’s interesting that people searching for help often get other results that are unrelated.[/quote]
I’d like to build a similar site primarily as a learning experience. But if I’m going to do it, I’d like it to at least have the potential to evolve into something useful. It would place an emphasis on dialog rather than just answers ala sites like Yahoo Answers, AnswerBag, Stack Exchange, etc.
A few others:
