So, here are a few more reasons to lace up your running shoes and squeeze in an evening sweat session today: According to a survey conducted by Brooks Running, 76 percent of respondents thought that other people look sexy while running and a whopping 51 percent said they’ve used the topic of running in a pick-up line. Whether the pick-up lines worked, we’ll never know. But it looks like the Schuylkill River Trail might just be better than OKCupid when it comes to finding a date—just sayin’.

And if getting picked up on your running route serves as more of a deterrent than a motivation, here’s one more neat statistic from the survey: 83 percent of the folks surveyed claimed they come up with their best ideas while running. So lace up those kicks and watch the brilliant ideas pour in. Happy trails, friends!
