It’s a new year, and that can mean only one thing: This will be the year I finally eat healthy and stop ignoring my Fitbit’s “time to move” reminders. The Buzz residents featured in this month’s issue need no reminders. They have gone mind-blowing distances to meet personal goals. In this issue, you’ll read about friends Shane Merz, Scott Humphries and Jeff Cotner, who participate in extreme races together. Brian Williams has completed 82 marathons – one in each of the 50 states, in 10 countries and on three continents. Katherine Richards has rappelled down 30 high-rise buildings to raise money for Special Olympics. Brooke Alexander, Emery Cookston, Connor Cox, Carlos Fernandez, Lissa Pearson and David Richards have hiked all over the world. You’ll also get to know residents who meet their health goals in the kitchen, including my neighbor, Christi Blakkolb Munz, a surgeon who makes her own baby food. I’m reading their stories from my couch, and – there it is – that darn Fitbit reminder that it’s time to move. Here’s to conquering our goals this year, whatever they may be. [email protected]
