Realizing that I had bitten off more than I could chew I decide to retrace me steps and head back to the apartment.  A combination of run/walk (more walk than run!) had me back at the apartment 25 minutes after setting off having covered 2.04 miles.  This was a fairly inasupicious start to the training regimen but I least I had started….
