Sounds like an injury waiting to happen to me. Lift then run, don't do both at the same time.

Fixed. Lots easier to run after lifting.

Is this a bad thing to do? I'm talking light weights. LIke 3-5 lbs. I'm just wondering if I'm the only one who does this, and is it a waste of time.

Run then lift, lift then run....the order is a debate for the masses...either way, dont try to multitask.

Life is Good
Run 1000 miles
bike 500 miles
finish a half Ironman triathlon
Warrior dash 2012
Chickamauga battlefield half 2012
and a few small races in between
give it a try...if it works...great...if it causes problems...stop..
also depends on the overall goal...becoming a world class runner? or being fit??
I wouldn't wear ankle weights...but I don't think a little extra weight in the arms is going to be a big problem.
I assume that you are running outside and the TM isn't the ONLY thing you do??
