So this is mean and petty of me, but DH and I were at the gym today and he was trying to get me to run, I hate running, hurts my chest and my size is changing quickly enough that I haven't bought a good bra yet, but he kept pushing, so I said okay. And I lasted longer than he did. I know its silly, but it made me really happy!

That will teach him not to push you!

I'm in better shape than my Hubby, and sometimes its fun to rub it in a little. :D

As you said, mean and petty. :o :devil:

I don't think it's silly. For most women (especially when we're still young or youngish) our husbands, fathers, brothers, etc. are superman to us. Their actual abilities have nothing to do with it. When we can do something that is traditionally thought of as more male than female better than they can it tends to either be awesome for us because hey, we're better than superman or it can be sad because it takes our superman down a notch or two. Sometimes we get a bit of both. I get the happy when I can do things better than hubby and sad when it happens with dad.

All that said - congrats, way to show him about pushing you. I hope he is as proud of you as we all are.
