A study that looked at how men and women run marathons differently might shed some insight on emotional differences as well.
The data was drawn from 14 marathons and almost 92,000 runners. It shows most men race to the finish line as quickly as they can, while women are more likely to pace themselves.
The senior author of the study told The New York Times this mirrors behavior off the track because men are psychologically more likely to adopt a "risky strategy" like a faster pace. And women prefer to take their time. Sound familiar?
We can't say if holding back or running full force is better for a relationship, but when it comes to marathons, the study suggests a mix of both is will likely give you good results.
