About me

Gender MALE
Occupation Race Announcer & Writer
Location St. Paul, Minnesota
Introduction I grew up in a place--rural Michigan--and time (1950-'67) where every home had full ashtrays and a ubiquitous supply Old Milwaukee in the fridge. League bowling and driving a golf cart were the only recognized forms of "exercise." Only two of the MacNeil siblings managed to escape. I was lucky enough to be one of them. Since then I became a runner and fan of triathlon. Since 1981 I have served the running and multisport lifestyles as a writer, publisher and announcer on a full-time basis.
