Yes you can. It is recommended that you seek medical advise first though, and if you get given the go-ahead, then start slowly, using a run-jog approach. Do not try to do too much too soon. I advise using a beginners running plan that you can find online.

It is never to late to start jogging, although I'd recommend for a person of any age that they get there heart checked out by a doctor just to make sure you have the all clear. I'd suggest starting out with small runs done at a steady pace and eventually build up your endurance. Remember there are elite marathon runners who are over 60.

Can jogging improve the shape of your hips?

Technically yes. When you are jogging, your leg muscles will start strengthening and if you are overweight, it can lead to weight loss. This by itself will shape your hips, although it is not the most efficient way to shape your hips. If you combine jogging with weightlifting, then you will start seeing your hips shape up!
