if you can already run for at least half an hour and complete 5k then you're off to a good start. try running outside, its a bit different to on a treadmill, i prefer it.
there are lots of tips on the training forum and programmes and tips to help improve your time.
does your gym have running club, or a local club near you that you could join? , regular running in the week will help improve your fitness and condition your body so that your tendons and joints etc become used to a different activity and strain on them,
i hope you enjoy your first parkrun
