Runner's World: Running Shoes, Marathon Training, Racing
I would also recommend going to a running store and get fitted for a pair of running shoes. I went to one where they watched how your feet strike the ground when you run and walk, and picked a shoe for me that fit. I noticed a huge difference in my running after I got the right pair of shoes!

I've been out of commission for a while because of a pulled muscle in my leg. Normally I would push through but with the wedding coming up I just can't risk being peg legged while walking down the isle.

I'd suggest buying some books on running also. Hal Higdon is a running guru who has some good book out. Before my 1st marathon, I bought and read The Non-Runners Marathon Trainer Amazon.com: The Non-Runner's Marathon Trainer (9781570281822): David Whitsett, Forrest Dolgener, Tanjala Kole: Books. Awesome book for inspiration and to get you ready to finish your 1st marathon.
I also was never a runner until medical school. I used to do tons of cardio weekly, but never ran, and when I 1st started running I couldn't even go 5 minutes without stopping! I now run several half marathons a year, and have completed 5 full marathons. The feeling of crossing any finish line during a race is worth all of the training:)
Good luck and great goal to set! Once you get started you'll be hooked!
