Josh,
It's pretty normal for a used 5-speed Getrag. Your first gear synchro is just a little worn. It will go into first at higher speeds if you double clutch (depress clutch, push lever from second to neutral, release clutch and blip throttle, depress clutch and shift to first). With practice you can do it in a second, but be careful not to tear up your transmission or blow your engine learning. Why do you need to shift from second to first at more than walking speed anyway?
HTH,
Colin
