About the poem:

Lately, I’ve been talking with lots of clients who are exercising so vigorously that they are reporting back spasms, hip injuries and foot pain. They can’t seem to stop. Bizarroworld where exercise causes pain, and yet is addictive. Tricky!

I’m remembering watching the movie Goshen about the Tarahumara Indians that run long distances with a very upright and light posture, often smiling.

Is it just Americans, or humans, that seem to find a way to overdo just about anything.
