If he did, time would stop.

Press the red x. He'll stop. I think mine just looked at me and started crying. He was so happy to finally get a rest.

Most people on this forum are weight lifters.

He's a runner.

He's trying to get away from us.

He's a lot like the pictures in the exercise videos. Some of them can do some really hard lifts a lot of times. I watched the guy deadlift one day, and finally I got tired of counting his reps and gave up.

I have something strange with my blue runner, he seems to be running, but he just stays in place. Should I give him other shoes?

I don't think it's a treadmill. You don't hear that annoying "plop, plop, plop, plop" noise along with the whirring sound. In our little cramped gym we have a treadmill that folds up to save space. When it's down it sticks out into where one would do deadlifts, etc. And then you have to live with the noise. Mercifully, it's broken now, but other members of our group are working desperately to fix it. I don't actually sabotage it, but I'm tempted.

He's running on ice, with a snowy background, and is tethered by a white tension band.

No. I'm sure he's teathered. If you stare at the screen for a long time, and let your eyes go just slightly out of focus, you can make out the outline of the tension band through the snow. If the man weren't blue, he wouldn't show up very well, either. The blue color also indicates that he's cold, and should probably come inside for a while.

It is, there's a polar bear chasing him but you can't see it because of the snow.
