Which is why 90% of females fall over at the finish line at NCAA Nationals XC every year. It's definitely because they are so tough.

Wasn't there a physiological reason for this released recently? Something about women's blood pressure not as quick to bounce back as men's? Has nothing to do with mental toughness and everything to do with simple physiology.
