When Is He Old Enough to Start Running?

So....Baron is five months now and still growing like a weed. He seems to change a bit every day. Most of his adult teeth are in except for those canines. He loves to fetch and run with his older brother Riley every day and I try to exercise him multiple times a day, work schedule and weather permitting. That being said...when do you think it's ok to begin taking him for runs? I am an avid runner and I am really hoping Baron will take to it and I am anxious to start with him. I know that I will need to start slow and add in short periods of jogging into his walks and build him up, I'm just worried about when is the right time to start this kind of activity? Is now ok, or do I need to wait a while longer. Does anyone have any experience, knowledge, or advice on this? Thanks.
