Our 10 Least Viewed Posts in 2013 and Why You Should Read Them
Have you ever missed something great? Maybe it was before you knew it existed, or maybe you just didn’t care. Recently I was looking over our Google analytics data from last year (a nerdy way to analyze website data). Our most popular post was seen over 36,000 times.
It’s easy to focus on the top, but I was curious which posts didn’t do so well.
Below is a list of the 10 posts that received the least amount of traffic in 2013. Some were published late in the year and didn’t have time to be seen. Others are from the early days before we had an email list or social media accounts.
Regardless, these 10 posts are worth a read if you missed them the first time.
If you want to learn how you can get maximum nutrients in minimum time, try this supercharged nut butter. A peanut butter replacement fortified with chia, flax, sunflower and pumpkin seeds. Yeah… amazing.
In honor of Pancake month, try these. Cranberries are packed with antioxidants and phytonutrients. They are also low in calories, high in vitamin C, and are loaded with proanthocyanidins, a compound which helps keep bacteria from sticking together in your digestive tract–leading to better digestive health from your stomach to your urinary tract. Like our other pancakes, these make a great post-run breakfast.
Soup is like a winter smoothie. This recipe is quick, easy, and will keep you warm and fueled for the rest of the winter. I suggest making it and sitting in a sunny corner of your kitchen to eat it. Next week might be warmer.
This post was actually from 2012, but it’s such a great race that I think everybody should run it at least once. This race supports environmental education to students in the Richfield public schools and holds the distinction as being Minnesota’s “green” race.
If you’ve ever toyed with the idea of doing a multi-sport event like a duathlon or triathlon, this is a great post that will give you some insight and inspiration. It’s also a race recap from the Iron Girl Duathlon.
This post was not only a review of the inaugural TC Urban Dash, but also gave tips on how to succeed as an urban adventure racer. If you need a change of pace from traditional road racing, I highly encourage you to find an urban adventure race. They are awesome.
It’s too bad more people didn’t see this post. Mud races are popping up everywhere, but this is the original one for women. They do some pretty cool stuff for cancer survivors and Army wives. Check it out this year.
I think this post will become more popular once people become aware of how Active Release Techniques can help treat a variety of running related injuries. It helped me set a marathon PR in 2013! If you haven’t considered it, seriously give it some thought.
One of the first posts on the blog, this post details how I ran 7+ miles to work almost every day for nearly three years. If you can, I highly encourage you to become a run commuter. It saves time and money!
This post was actually adapted from an email I wrote to a co-worker in 2012 who was trying to “get in shape“. A 5k is one of the best ways for new runners to finally push themselves towards that first goal. Just signup!
I would love it if you’d read a few of these posts and give us some feedback. We’re always trying to stay relevant.
