As is recently evident, walking could be MORE beneficial in the long run, if you avoid injury and stay on track more consistently.

Dang, I'm not sure I DRIVE 70 miles a week
This is true (as far as I know) for walking vs. running. The other thing on walking is that if you do it at a big incline (7%+), it can have similar effects as running on the muscles, but with less impact.
