CONGRATS! That's awesome. Remember that first one and cherish it. If you don't you'll likely to forget about it as that pullup is the first of literally thousands more to come.

Great job!

That's awesome and horrifying at the same time.

Re: My chin went over that bar

Since I started crossfit, I've hit many milestones - doing my first pullup still ranks at the top!

CONGRATS!

Congrats, Kristin! I can't wait til I get my first pull up. I've only been CFing for ~3 months so I probably have a while to go. I will no doubt be doing a victory dance then too.
