About Me

Hello Friends! (There are no strangers here, just friends I haven’t met yet.)

My name is Colleen and obviously my last name is Smith.  It’s basically the coolest name out there, hence its popularity.

I love running!  I have been logging my runs on a website (www.running2win.com) for a few years.  I use it to track my mileage and write a few sentences about the run, how I felt, etc.  Then I started reading a lot of blogs.  Blogging looks fun.  I’m already pretty awesome at telling pointless stories and giving way too many details on the trivial parts of my runs and my life.

So I want to bring that skill to the blogging world as my personal creative outlet, to connect with new friends, and hopefully provide some entertainment and motivation to others!

So here’s some other background info on me:

I am a mid-20s girl, living, working, and working out in Chicago.  I lived in Cincinnati for a little over a year while I worked for Sweaty Bands, but moved back to Chicago in June of 2015.


To bring home the bacon, I am an Internet Marketing Consultant.  I used to be a CPA/Accountant, but with my move back to Chicago came a change in career.

I have amazing friends and family.  They are simply the best.


 (These are my brothers.  I have lots of other awesome family members too – parents, cousins, etc.)

Some random facts I think you should know before reading my blog:

I really love Katy Perry…every song is great.  Teenage Dream is the best song ever.

I spent 5 magical years at the University of Dayton – Go Flyers!

I am afraid of dogs and always have been.  It runs in the family.  All the girl cousins on the Smith side of the family have dog issues.  However, my family decided it was a good idea to get a dog once I went away to college.  So now I love my little Bailey.


I have weird eating habits.  I have still never eaten a hamburger.  I used to pretty much only eat plain pasta and peanut butter on toast.  Since college, I have expanded my horizons and now eat like a real person…sort of.

I drink insane amounts of chocolate milk.

Tom Hanks is in all of my top 3 favorite movies – Forrest Gump, You’ve Got Mail, and Toy Story (all 3).  I can quote all these and many other movies very well.


So that’s that.  I hope you’ll gather any other necessary information about me through reading here.  Enjoy!
