Search Phrases That Brought People to CSmith Run

This was probably one of my favorite posts to write.  I monitor my site stats through Google Analytics and one of the features is that you can see what search phrases brought a user to your site.  Some are normal-seeming like “colleen smith running blog” but others are interesting.  For most of the search terms, I am able to easily identify which post prompted my blog to come up in such a search, so I guess they aren’t totally obscure.  It is just weird to see what other people are searching for…and I hope I gave them what they wanted.

busse woods red loop – Busse Woods is the forest preserve in Schaumburg I ran at a lot when I was living at my parent’s house in the Chicago suburbs.  The red loop is 7.7 miles…might actually be slightly less now that they added a pedestrian bridge instead of making you wait at a stop light to cross a busy street.  (A biker’s death prompted this.)


4 mi progression run treadmill – Sounds terrible.  But if you’re looking for a sample treadmill progression run, here’s one I made up.  I enjoy making up workouts based on my music, because you know I’m listening to music on the treadmill.  Which brings me to:

running playlist 2014 – You can see a few playlists I have posted here, herehere, and here.  I’ll get you all my most recent playlist really soon!

adjectives for yesterday – Hmmm, it was humid, muggy, hot, sunny (weather forecast of Cincinnati, OH for 5/8/2015), relatively uneventful (during the day at least…hoping for a fun night as I write this before heading out with some friends!), Friday.  I don’t think that’s an adjective, more of a fact.

pennellwood resort The best place ever.


Chicago marathon taper – Tapering is my favorite part of marathon training because it means short, easy runs.  My friend Catherine wrote a guest post with tapering secrets!

m&m’s marathon – I wish I knew what this person was trying to find by Googling this phrase.  I LOVE M&M’s.  So if there is some type of M&M’s marathon event, I’d like to be involved.

fun and cabrewing – Definitely 2 things that go hand in hand.  I had a blast cabrewing and can’t wait to do it again this summer!


kyle c smith rollerblader – I just tried Googling this name too and didn’t find a rollerblader named Kyle C. Smith.  But I can tell you the reason you were directed to my blog is because I have a brother named Kyle, our last name is smith, and I like to rollerblade.

adjectives to describe a half marathon – I will describe my last half marathon for you: early, exciting (at the end at least), fast, painful (for the last few miles), well-executed, sweaty, crowded (but not overly crowded), flat.

how to make bottle stand with marbles – I don’t know what a bottle stand is, but here is a craft I made with marbles.


body pump before and after blog – I love BodyPump!  But I don’t do it enough on a regular basis to have before and after improvement stat, photos, etc.  It is for sure a solid workout and I hope to start doing it more regularly now.

There were a few more interesting ones, but I’ll save those for another time, as I’m sure more will keep trickling in.

How would you describe yesterday in adjectives?

Bloggers – what is the most obscure phrase that has brought someone to your site?

One Thought on “Search Phrases That Brought People to CSmith Run

  1. I’m sure “bodypump before and after blog” was intended to find a blog documenting what a person looked like before doing BodyPump and after doing BodyPump for a long time, but the way it’s written, it almost sounds like it’s asking for advice: “Should you do BodyPump before you blog, or after?” Hahahaha. I’m sure there’s a very important science behind the timing of your BodyPump in relation to blog writing :P
