The 2011 Life Time Chicago Triathlon topped the list. Congrats to female pro triathlete Sarah Haskins on her three-peat (3 consecutive wins at the Chicago Triathlon 2009 - 2011, first-time in triathlon history!) and for being such a great gal. And to first-time winner Matt Chrabot, who has Chicago roots. It's always great to see Mike Adamle broadcasting from the finish line for NBC5 and always a great day when you can smile at the end of the day and know that every single media outlet covered this great event in spite of Hurricane Irene. The press in this city is amazing and we have an outstanding Mayor who came out and raced the event as a private citizen and had a lot of fun. Who could ask for a more glorious day?

Working with the Benjamin Marshall Society to produce the 100th Anniversary of East Lake Shore Drive celebration at The Drake definitely made me a fan of this historic architect.
Many thanks to Walter Jacobson, legendary Jimmy Damon, Christie Hefner and William Marovitz, Blair Kamin, Bill Zwecker, and all the other folks who lent me their valued support.
