Could the running path lead to love? If you’re lucky! According to the survey, 76% of all runners (84% of males) believe that people look sexy when they’re running and three-quarters agree that they’d be more attracted to someone if they found out he or she was a runner. Turning thoughts into action, half of all surveyed (51%) have used running as their pick-up line.
“Our mission at Brooks is to inspire everyone to run and be active, and I can’t find much better inspiration than the results of this survey,” said Heather Snavely, Brooks Senior Director of Global Brand. “Who doesn’t want to feel healthier, smarter and sexier? And all you need to do is put on a pair of running shoes and log some miles? What are we waiting for, let’s lace up and go!”

Surprise, surprise – more men (75%) than women (68%) bragged that logging miles together as a couple, increased their mileage between the sheets.
- Performance on the road trumps performance between the sheets according to 57% of respondents. Ladies more so than their male counterparts (63% vs. 37%) admit to being more confident while pounding the pavement.
