I copied everything about this 5k into my post today. I haven’t checked it out yet, and cannot figure out how to check it out without publishing my post first. So here it is: I do want to get in shape. I do not at this point have the oomph to actually RUN a 5k but I am betting I could walk it very rapidly. It helps to know others are doing it too… makes me feel like I am getting in shape with my good friends.
*** update I didn’t finish publishing this until August (yeh, a little behind). As a result, the 5K at Automattic Worldwide is already over. But I am going to go ahead and do it anyway.
Get in shape with us: Automattic WorldWide 5k. 3/29/11
At WordPress.com we work from all over the world (See How WordPress.com is made). We often do fun things to keep us all connected, and we’re doing a great one next month – A wordwide 5k walk/run, and you’re invited to participate:
at Automattic we use internal blogs for socializing and exchanging non-work ideas in addition to making WordPress.com and our other products more awesome. One thing we’re concerned about is staying healthy – we even have an entire blog dedicated to fitness.
We had a great idea: Get all 80 Automatticians from 62 cities to run/walk a 5k on the same day! This way we can get some exercise together as a company even though we’re apart (though we won’t rule out a softball or Texas scramble at our next meetup).
Details on the 5k and how you can participate are here. Signing up and getting in shape will certainly give you a few things to post about.
