Thanks for the info.
I use to be a big time runner.
For the weight you listed it shouldn't be hard on your body as long as you have bought a really good pair of running shoes. Don't be afraid to listen to you body and if you need to take a day off do so.
I see they have a program on here listed as couch potato to 5k so maybe you could look that up. Some advice as how you possibly could train. The last 2 weeks before the race you don't want to run any long runs so you could go into the race with rested legs.
2 weeks before the race on a weekend you should do you long run. If you are fitter by then it wouldn't hurt to jog a 5k or 3.1 mile run.
Every week then counting backwards you could do a long run with never increasing more than 10% distance a week.
Every 3rd week should be an easy week so your body can recover.
It doesn't hurt to run/walk during a run. Best advice I can give is go out and enjoy it and have fun.
Good luck in your race/journey.
The not so good, Getting suck out with the group and running faster than your body wants to or can and then being a long run after that. When you do the race run it at your own pace.

When exercising you have to just keep moving one foot at a time.
