If you do want to eventually run a 5k, check out the Couch to 5k program/app. I've successfully used it reach 5k and I know several other people who've had success with it. If you keep with it, you'll get to where you can run 5k. There's also a friendly community at /r/c25k to share encouragement and successes.
