Great first ride!

Got fitted today for my new bike; went pretty quick. Decided to take it out for a test run tonight since it stopped raining. Took a few miles to get comfortable since it has been so long, but I had no big issues. Had to un-clip a few times which is always scary in the beginning; nothing like falling over cause you can't get your feet off the pedals. Anyways, everything went fine, un-clipping, clipping, just like the old days; felt familiar.

I knocked out a 13 mile ride in a little under an hour. I could still feel my lungs burning after around 10 miles from the 25 years of smoking. But I'll take small bites and work up my endurance and my pace.
