you know what the hardest part of Henninger is? if you enter/exit from the gated area and don't come up Eaton Canyon, it's going up that last little hill just past the bridge. freakin' brutal.
I actually find that part relatively okay, since it's at the beginning of the run (it is a steep part though). The worst part for me is the turn into the "canyon" just past 1.5 mile mark. It's short, but goes from a relatively flat part to a super hard climb, and is far enough into the run that it really has the potential to kick your ass. More than once, I've had to pause to catch my breath either on that part, or right after it (before the 2 mile mark).

Thanks for the advice everyone. I didn't like jogging, but since its warm I'm giving up and will play basketball everyday instead. That being said the jogging helped me lose 20 pounds since I posted. If I didn't have such a terrible diet it would probaly be much more. Thanks for the help.

Saucony shoes are the best bet for the money. They last forever and have just as much research thrown into them as the bigger brands. ROT is right about starting slow (but I bet you'll find you can get back IN shape in a lot less time it took you to get OUT of it). But I'll amend his advice by saying: never walk. Even if you're dog-tired, at least keep your knees a little higher and your step a little quicker than if you were walking. It doesn't take much more energy, but it boosts your self confidence a ton.
And if you want the best deal for getting started running, I am doing a Saucony psecial, buy a pair of the 3 best shoes they have, and recive a pair of running shorts and running t free...and the price is great.

Congratulations on the weight loss... A word of caution though - if you plan to keep it off, you're definitely going to have to focus on your diet (if, as you say, that's a problem for you.) Bradford
