Clint:

The first step pain sounds like a sympton of a classic case of Plantar Fasciitis. I would recommend you read the Heel Pain Book on this website.
It will describe the treatments available, but I recommend you make an appointment with a Podiatrist sooner rather than later. The odds are it won't get better on its own, and the longer it lingers the worse it may get.
