Mike Neag

Copley, Ohio, USA, Ohio

Main FocusTriathlons, duathlons & biathlons; road racing limited to TTs, some 5ks. Beer nursing.
Post-Race Drinkumm...water (or maybe a Coke if available)
Off-Day ActivityHallmark Movies (ok, stop laughing)

When invited to fill a large blank space with words I am tempted to write my memoirs. As I recently learned, just about all of the people approaching their last horizon (OK, get old) hear the call to write their life's memoirs. Think about that, who wants their life to end without making testimony to a life well lived? Strange that it happened to me as such a young age.

Alas, I acknowledge that this would be an inappropriate forum for my life story. I will only share the last line of my this wonderful narrative. "I love to learn and really, really, enjoy living." You are welcome.

The family: I’m a dad with three great kids and a wife (“Saint Kathy”) of 45 years. Also fortunate to have a circle of wonderful, life long friends.

The work: I currently work as an adjunct professor of chemistry at Stark State College in North Canton. As my students say, "Mr. Neag, coming to your class is like getting punched in the mouth". I love my left jab if you're interested. Before retiring to teach, I was a Polymer physicist that grew up to be an R&D building manager. In between, I spent many years as a Technical Manager in analytical sciences (think TV's "CSI" without beautiful women in stiletto heels and projects that take days rather than an hour).

I'm also serve as a mentor in the outstanding "iCare" program (1 child, 1 day a week, for 1 school year). I've worked with several students for three years - always during school hours and on school property. Check it out at "". I highly recommend this United Way program and would love to see all of my SBR teammates involved. We are far too fortunate to keep our experience to ourselves.
