Men outperform women physically in just about every way. Why should marathon running be different?
Women have a better threshold for pain then men do which is something that is ideal to have in an endurance sport. I also read that even though women have smaller lungs, their aerobic system is more efficient then mens' are which would also help them in terms of marathons.
I think the 2 hour mark will be broken but it will be done by someone who is on EPO or some other banned substance.
Are there scientific studies which support the pain threshold claim? (I am not denying it but just wondering.)
Also, in the context of "really" breaking the two hour mark I was assuming it was a legitimate break and nothing something that will be discounted if illegal substances were used.

"“Human studies more reliably show that men have higher pain thresholds than women, and some show that men have a higher pain tolerance as well,” says Jennifer Graham, professor of biobehavioral health at Penn State.
