You will totally get there! A lot of it, it turns out, is core. And confidence.
Confidence is what's killing me on the handstands. I have the core strength, and I can do it at a climbing gym... just not on a hard wood floor.
Also, given our relative body types, running fast seems likely to be easier for you, and pullups and bench presses seems likely to be easier for me. *g* It's all good! IDIC in the gym. ;-)
