Happy Monday, all! I don’t know how many followers Zachary and I have, but we would love it if you all would join us, wherever you may be, in this worldwide 5K! One of my goals this year is to expand my enthusiasm for fitness outward. Does that make sense? Yes, I want to be fit for my own health and well-being, but it’s more than that! In partnering with Zachary, sharing with anyone who wants to read about it, inviting friends and family to participate, I’m hoping to inspire! I have never felt physically better in my life, so why would I not want to share that? I’d love to have a “fit friends” network, and for you to be part of it, in whatever way is best for you!
In the spirit of enthusiastic participation, Zachary and I are going to join the other bloggers! If you would like me to include you in my blog about the event, let me know. Please send me details, photos… whatever you have to commemorate your participation! Have fun!
It wasn’t just a one-time event! The Automattic Worldwide WP 5k is back again in 2012! Set your timers for April 29th!
At Automattic we work from all over the world, and we use internal blogs for socializing and exchanging non-work ideas in addition to making WordPress.com and our other products more awesome. One of the things we’re really concerned about is staying healthy – we even have an entire internal blog dedicated to fitness.
We had a great idea: Get all Automatticians from 79 cities & 24 countries 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).
A year later, and there are now 105 Automatticians we hope will take part in the 5k all around the world in 2012.
