Brooks "Run Happy" Tip: Add some new favorite tunes to your workout playlist! Music distracts people from pain and fatigue, elevates mood, increases endurance, reduces perceived effort and may even promote metabolic efficiency. When listening to music, people often run/walk farther, bike longer and swim faster than usual — often without realizing it. Find your groove and move to some new tunes this week!
