A whole new meaning to "gym rats"

Posted Aug 26 2008 4:04pm



When we see someone who exercises obsessively our society tends to admire them. Can't miss a day, feel guilty if they don't go, ignore pain and injury.



What if it was a rodent running on a wheel, unable to stop despite losing weight and losing appetite and eventually... dying. Sounds different, right? Doesn't sound like virtue, or a choice, or a response to society's pressure to be thin.




Got a "gym rat" in your life?
