Confucius never mentioned to watch that first step though.  If you’re not careful you might just trip.  Today I not only tripped but face-planted. It  was supposed to be the first day of my half marathon training but work and then life got in the way.  I know that the half marathon is a long way away, but it is discouraging to see that I can’t even get the first day right.  I’ll make up for it today no matter what though.  I guess it is symbolic.  This is going to be a very difficult journey, and there will be stumbles along the way, but as long as I pick myself up and keep going I’ll be ok.
