I loved reading this article by Chantella Perera on her experience as a part-time professional athlete, juggling her corporate job, her maternal job, and her athletic job with the West Coast Eagles.
(For the non-Australian readers, the West Coast Eagles are the superior team within the Australian Football League, which is itself the superior football code throughout the world. You should absolutely become a fan of the AFL and the West Coast Eagles in particular).
I wasn’t familiar with Perera specifically before the article but I was broadly aware of how difficult it must be for the players in the female teams, who all have to juggle their playing careers with another traditional career (as opposed to the male teams, who just get to be full time footballers). I was blown away by the discipline and the achievement she described in this article though.
