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.
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.
