How marathon motivation differs by gender
Fast Company's Most Influential Women in Tech 2010
I always hate these studies that try to lump things by gender. They say, men run marathons because they’re competitive, women run marathons because they want to feel good about themselves. Direct quote: “The study seems to give that age-old argument that men are competitive and driven, while women are risk-averse, unassertive and driven by emotion.” It’s just SO demeaning.
It’s not easy being a woman in a man’s world. More power to these women in tech.
