Back in the Saddle

This is new: my legs, my lungs, my throat - all burning as I ride my bike for the first time in ages. I can feel my heart, huge and pounding, hanging heavy in my chest.

I am going to ride forty miles on May 1st, and I am ridiculously out of shape. I slip behind a group of cyclists and we all begin the long ascent up the last hill to the park entrance, but I'm the only one that's breathing hard.
