Run a bit, walk a bit, and enjoy. There's some good sites like, which has a good beginners section.

run sloooowly. its really easy to start too fast and then have to stop soon coz you hurt. To start with- if you can still talk (just about) your going slow enough. Can't talk, slow down.
Oh and- wear a sports bra. your boobs can bounce up to 9cm a step! which apparently adds up to some thing huge like 135m a mile. and all that bouncing as well as being uncomfy leads to saggyness.

BUPA has an excellent guide for the total beginner. I used this when I started running a couple of years ago and within 6 months I had completed a 5k and a 10k race.
