Which trainers did you get?
I got some Asics GT3000 today to replace by knackered Gel 3030 oldies.
very comfy, but a bit lairy in some kind of fluorescent blue colour.
If you're buying gloves, I recommend you buy thin ones.
i have Ron Hill thin gloves, they're brilliant. If you get really thick gloves you'll end up wanting to take them off once you get warmed up.

AW is Autumn/Winter
As the others have already said, it is possible and Couch to 5k is a very sensible plan.
Two bits of additional advice for you:
1. Get yourself some decent trainers fitted at a local running shop.
2. Treat the rest days as importantly as the training days when you are starting out.
There are loads of people who over do things and end up with injuries keeping them stuck back on the sofa, god luck by the way and Google Park Run.
