If you’ve got a cup of coffee in your hand right now, you’re not alone. About 83 percent of adults in the United States drink coffee on the regular, averaging about 3 cups per day (or 587 million cups, collectively!).

Most of us drink coffee before heading out the door for the gym or an early-morning run. As it turns out, athletes reap more than just a pick-me-up from their daily cuppa.

Coffee, how do we love thee? Let us count the ways.
