first time running need help
Unless my maths is wrong - you've got two months to build up not one
If you already have a reasonable level of cardio vascular fitness then there's no reason why you shouldn't be able to run just over six miles in two months time provided that you build up gradually and accept that you probably won't be challenging for any awards over and above whatever they give you for turning up and finishing.
Best bet is to find a 10k training schedule (look under the blue 'Training' tab on here) then adapt it to suit your current fitness and available time. Then source yourself a pair of decent running shoes that are appropriate to your gait/running style before getting outside in the fresh air and enjoying yourself.

Then do it !!!!!!
You sound like you have a good basic level of fitness - running is continuous pain and hard - 2 months to train - go for it - if it hurts - its meant to hurt
remember - pain is weakness leaving the body
" Its something I want to do" - then do it !!!
