What helped me was the Couch 2 5K (C25K) program. It was tough at first and repeated some weeks until I was comfortable to move on to the next week. But, I finished it and it was awesome.

What Dragon said.

But, a bit more information could be useful. Do you run already? Walk already? Do you want to build up to a 5k or do you have a race in mind? What other activities do you already do?

There are many ways. The first is to build a good walking base. You must walk before you run!

Getting properly fitted for running shoes has helped a great many people, myself included. Head to a specialty running store and get a proper fitting! It's worth the investment, and usually isn't as much as you think.

Then, pick up a training program. There are many apps (I love the Zombies, Run! 5k training app: https://www.zombiesrungame.com/ - worth every penny.) Or you can use the Sparkpeople 5k your way training plans:

These are great because they also include the walking plans, a good way to build up to something more achievable first.

There are also many such plans around.
