Nice job. I think the hardest part of running is maintaining the drive to keep doing it. Especially when the mornings are colder, and the days have less sunlight.

Start by walking, and just SLOWLY build up your endurance. Don't step out tomorrow and run 3-5 miles. Find a one-two mile route that you can walk, or do that on a treadmill, and just start doing it. From there, add parts where you run during that same stretch. Increase the runnning as you deem fit to do. Before long that 1-2 mile walk turns into a 1-2 mile jog. Then build on that to 2-3 miles and so on.
One more note, get a good pair of shoes. Go to a running store, do the shoe fitting, and spend the $$$ for the right pair of shoes. The right, or wrong, pair of shoes can make or break this process.
Bottom line, have fun and good luck.
