That's amazing! I could never do a pull-up, even as a kid in gym class.

You rock!

I have been just hanging on that bar for a few weeks now and just a minute ago I was thinking how sore my muscles are from just trying to "think up". You must be just thrilled.

That's awesome! I've never done a pull-up in my life, it's definitely one of my "dream" fitness goals, right up there with the 10 mile run. Congrats!
