I've used the Couch25k program and I think it works but I have to admit I haaate the music. I'm going to be jog/walking- seeing how long I can sustain a jog and then trying to build from there. What works well for me is also one song jogging/running one song walking.

This is also a goal of mine- I'd be more than happy to buddy up with you for it. Best of luck!

A lot of people swear by Couch to 5K. There are also plenty of other plans out there. Do a search for Hal Higdon or Jeff Galloway 5K Training Plans, for example. Good luck. You have plenty of time. You can do it!

Couch to 5k is a great program designed to slowly increase your timing and mileage (small goals). I used it in the beginning to prepare for my first 5k and have started it again as I'm coming back from an injury that has kept me out for the last month.

A goal without a plan is just a wish.

I have ran 5K's in the past, but got off track with working out and jogging. I need to set goals for the future so running a 5K sounds like a good one. I just need to set smaller goals first, in order to meet my main goal. Any suggetions?
