Good advice. I was going to post something similar, but you can just put me down as +1 for stretching both before and after you run.

If you can...get at least 7-8 hours of sleep and wake up around....5:30am-6:30am
in the morning Oxygen is rich! if you have the chance run in a park, trail, tracks e.t.c as much as possible! I keep my back straight, have my arms at a 90 degree angle or whatnot.. and I keep my mouth open a bit and breath through my nose then out my mouth
If u want bring a bottle of water with you (only really needed if you run vigorusly or in a warmer climate) how much do you weigh? maybe you could even wear a knee brace when running? get the right amount of proteins :) a good thing to do is run shortly for a warm up and then go for the run. Also stretch afterwards...your pretty much set now! :)
I run alot in the morning I remember when I first started running I actually got a good number of shinsplits but now it doesn't happen very much :)
(I diddn't read any other posts so I just gave my $.5) happy running!
