    Interspace8 gives you some really good advice! (as did a lot of the other comments). It is so easy to start off too fast, so just slow down, get a rhythm going and enjoy the run!  So what if you have to walk a little!  I ended up walking a few intervals in my first few runs, and then one day when I felt really comfortable and confident, I just told myself to keep putting one foot in front of the other, no matter how slow the jog, keep my eyes up, and before I knew it, I ran the whole distance:)  Enjoy!
