Personal Best: A Look Back at Our Summer of Love

With the scent of Best of Phoenix in the air (our biggest issue of the year final hits newsstands -- and the Internet -- later this week) we set out this summer to ask some of our favorite food folks to list their "Personal Bests."

Check out our slideshow, recapping the summer of Personal Bests.
