And I can’t link to it, but Self Magazine just ranked Bethesda as the healthiest city in America.  Here’s what they wrote:

This affluent suburban area boasts proximity to the Chesapeake Bay, the Potomac River, 34,000 acres of parks and 100 miles of trails. But the true secret to residents’ healthy lifestyle may be a subway stop: The Metrorail has created a commuter’s heaven, where women can live, play and work without a car. “My running partners and I can jog the Capital Crescent Trail into the heart of Washington, D.C., have breakfast and take the Metro home,” says Kimberly Price, 36, a mom in nearby Gaithersburg. Women here have some of the nation’s lowest rates of smoking, obesity, cancer, depression and heart disease, and access to more doctors per capita than anywhere else we looked. Farmers’ markets offer up Maryland-grown produce, and Bethesda
is home to 200 restaurants within 300 blocks, many catering to local demand for healthy bites, says Stephanie Coppula, director of marketing for the Bethesda Urban Partnership. “People love to walk downtown,” she adds. “You see everything from jogging strollers to the late-night crowd.”

Damn right.
