How "long distance" are we talking? You'll be fine as long as you're not doing half marathons 3 times a week or something like that. Running is really good for your heart and lungs, as well as being a great fat burner. Sure it CAN be bad for your knees, but anything can be bad on your knees if you do it enough and you have a predisposition for joint/knee problems. I honestly don't see you running enough to have a negative impact on your joints or your muscle gains. And for anyone who thinks that runners don't have or can't put on muscle, just look at a picture of Flo Jo. Yes, she was primarily a sprinter, but that goes with what I said about not running too long distance.
