Do you create content on national running day? How can you create content for your blog around running if you’re not a sneaker manufacturer? Did you even know today was national running day?

Of course, some people will stop and think, ok, national running day, so what. If I owned a sports store or a sneaker brand, I could put some content up for this day. But wait! You CAN create content on national running day!

If you’re a personal injury attorney, you could put up an article about trip and fall accidents. If you’re a criminal defense attorney, you could put up content about running from the law. If you’re a plumber, you could put up content about running faucets. If you’re a marketing firm, you could talk about running PPC advertisements. And of course, if you sell sneakers (or tennis shoes) you could post about National Running Day.
