Blog Post Ideas For Runners

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...

Somehow I have managed to blog every day for a over a year! Not all of my posts were running related, but a lot of them were! I write 80% of my posts ahead of time (including this one... I wrote it back in May!) and usually have 15-20 just chilling in my draft folder ready to go when I need them. I don't always feel like writing and I don't always have an idea for a post, so I try to write when I am inspired. Once in awhile I have had to comb the internet for blog post ideas. Google “ideas for blog posts” and many websites will pop up to save the day. I decided to compile my own list of ideas directed toward runners. Some of these topics I have already written about and some I will write someday. Go ahead and use any and all of these idea when you are hard up for a post! I know I've been there...
1. Your favorite stretches and how to do them (with pictures)
2. A race re-cap or review
3. Your favorite cross training activities
4. A picture tour of your most recent long run
5. Tips for running through the elements (heat, cold, rain, etc...)
7. Your favorite running accomplishments
9. Your best race
10. Your worst race
11. Current running goal and your plan to accomplish it
12. What you can't run without (gear, clothes, whatever)

Am I missing any good ideas?
Have you ever needed Google to help you come up with a blog topic?


  1. Great list!!
    I blogged every day for a year and a half but now I usually just do about 4 posts a week and that has been better for me.

  2. These are great ideas!!! I'll certainly have to refer to these for future posts. Sometimes I feel like my blog posts are essentially 'phone dumps.' :S

    1. Ummmmm as long as you are dumping Lola pics and your cute running outfits, we do not mind!!

  3. These are all great! As I sometimes get blogging burnout, I think this list will prove VERY helpful for me haha! I tend to want to stay current, so when my life is boring I don't have much to say, but I do like the idea of writing about past races or other things like that!

    1. Awesome! I don't mind reading about things that happened in the past- especially since we can usually learn SO much from it.

  4. This is my new favorite post. Thanks for sharing all these!

    1. Awesome! Feel free to use the topics! I have been saved quite a few times by googling stuff like this.

  5. I don't know how I do it either! You would think I'd run out of things to say....

  6. Great Ideas. I definitely needed some inspiration on what to write and this really helped!
