As Americans across the country resolve to stay fit in the new year, we'll kick off 2013 with some of our favorite Metro Connection stories about health and wellness. We'll hear again from the artist who came down with an extremely rare brain disorder, and find out how that disorder has affected his work. We'll go skating with an ice-hockey team for children with disabilities, and we'll do a check-up of our region's roads and bridges, to see how well they're faring these days.


[Music: "Every Little Bit Hurts" by John Davis from Title Tracks / "Auld Lang Syne" by Jim Galloway and Jay McShann from Christmas Jazz Greats]
