Thanks very much for the entirety of this post. I agree 100% with those points, specifically.

Despite being super out of shape right now, I do have some experience with endurance activities in the past (multiple half-marathons and semi-regular solo century rides), and I have maintained for a long time that any physical activity that's sufficiently difficult is an emotional activity.
