So I am only on wk1 day2 and probably haven't ran in over 15yrs. My sister runs all the time and has an actual running store near her. She was nice enough to buy me a super nice pair of brooks launch2. After day two I'm sore of course but my knees and ankles hurt too is this normal and will it pass as my legs become more accustomed to the strain or could this be a problem that keeps me from getting into running like I want??

When I first started training to do sprint triathlons, its been bout 8 years since I ran (school), and I didn't start my running training lightly, and I experienced pain in my left knee,  so I backed off my training and took it easy for awhile and the pain went away and haven't experienced it since!  Hope this helps you!

Sorry to here that you have problem. I would definitely slow down. Before running again start walking->speed walking->power walking. Increase your speed and distance slowly. When you can walk with no pain 3.8-4 mph try to jog with the same speed. If your ankles and knees can tolerate this then use this speed and try C25K again.

So found out my brooks are the wrong kind shoe I need lol my ankle is feeling way better but it seemed like my knees got worse just doing Dailey activities like work and chores now they hurt all the time not just running I bought some inserts from a running store and decided to just use them in my shoes I have to get better and just start walking about 5 miles at a time to start out, and try some leg excersises at the gym. Once I get my legs built up I'll go spend 120 bucks on some awesome shoes this running store had me try on. It was like night and day, if the colors weren't so crazy I'd try for two pairs to have a pair to work in.

I would love to know how things are going. I am a beginner also and have some knee issues I am concerned about. I plan on doing a couple of weeks of prep before starting W1 and modifying based on how my body responds.
