Go for it! :) Of course you can join.
There are some great exercise books out there, like "New Rules of Lifting for Women" though you may need to get creative with some of the exercises that require weights if you do not have access to them. You can also make your own weights for fairly cheap. There are sandbags you can make (get dufflebag with handles, get large ziplock bags and kitty litter... iff the ziplock bags and make them whatever weight you want, then put them in the dufflebag.) And for a barbell, you can make two and stick them on each end of a broom stick.
There are also a lot of bodyweight exercises where you use your own bodyweight to weight train. For instance there are pushups, chin-ups, planks, jumping jacks, burpees, etc.
If you are going to be doing walking/running you should look into HIIT (High Intensisty Interval Training). From my experience (and others I have read about) it gives better results and you don't have to work out as long.
