First of all you need to start running. I did a 5K in 2006 it was a lot of fun but still if your not prepared for it it's exhausting.
I would say get to the gym at least 5 days a week to run personally I think you will do better performance wise if you run outside. Treadmills soften the blow to your legs which makes it easier. Your going to be running outside not on a treadmill so I say get outdoors and get your legs used to the pavement trust me it's a lot harder.
If you can't run a mile do the stop start method that is what I did I would run as long as I could then walk 30 seconds it works.
There's also the couch to 5K program that is really helpful to a lot of people. I suggest typing it in and following that program.
