About me

I’m Greg Crowther, a professional biology instructor and amateur runner and writer. I live in Seattle, Washington (USA) with my wife and my three sons.

This blog is a continuation of the “My Track Record” blog previously found at running-blogs.com/crowther/. I started the blog in May 2006, though some pieces older than that have been added retroactively.

You can also find me online at my website for my professional activities and on YouTube. My email address is gregorio.del.laboratorio@gmail.com.

The header photo of me was taken by Kevin Gilbert of the Herald-Mail at the 2009 JFK 50 Mile. It is used here with permission.

Thanks for reading.


  1. Hi Greg,

    Sorry for the random nature of this contact . . .

    I’m a runner and Chuckit member who has been suffering through a random and persistent achilles injury for the last 6+ months. Time off, physical therapy, and rehab have had little effect. Through the grapevine, I heard that you may have been having a similar issue, so I wanted to touch base and see if you’d be willing to swap injury stories.

    I sent you a friend request on FB too. If my grapevine info is bad, feel free to disregard. Happy running!

  2. Hey Greg- I found your blog while looking for the quote about Jay Hook- nice to know my favorite sports book resonated with someone else! Among my favorite quotes (about Foster Castleman) “If you have a name like an orthodontist you’re going to play like an orthodontist” or “Coot Veal? Cot Deal?” Gregg Anderson, Amherst, MA

    • or, and I quote from memory here “watching Hector Lopez field a ground ball was like watching a farmer attack a snake with a stick.”
