What was it like the first time you benched 2 plates?

I'm getting hella close to 225. I've heard that it's the best feeling when you bench it for the first time. What was it like for you and how long did it take you to get to 225?

What do you think of the Starting Strength Challenge, Strengthlifting new sport

Obviously it's being run by Rippetoe's Starting Strength. It's 3 lifts, Squat Press(overhead) Deadlift 3 attempts. Notable differences to powerlifting are that it's a press and not a bench press. Judges don't give commands, they just judge the attempt as per the rules. ...
