Re the Petersen articles, I knew before I even got there that the example of woman-dominated time intensive hobby was going to be horseback riding… because I spend about 3 hours 3 times a week on it, and I don’t even really compete. And one of the (many) reasons I don’t have kids is I knew I would have a hard time keeping up with time intensive hobbies that I love and the trade off wasn’t worth it for me (do I know women with kids who ride, yes, but it definitely requires a good partner).

There is a build up over about four months from 10 miles to that 20 miler, along with running 40-70 miles per week, weight training, yoga, foam rolling….
