Before you run your next 5k, chug down a large watermelon Slurpee and DOMINATE. I think?
A very random new study out of the University of Westminster in the U.K. found that drinking something that looks pink . . . and TASTES PINK, whatever "pink" tastes like . . . makes people run 4% faster and further.
Why? The researchers say, quote, "Adding pink to an artificially sweetened solution not only enhanced the perception of sweetness, but also enhanced feelings of pleasure, self-selected running speed, and distance covered."
