When I see the term “5K” I would rather it be about money. But alas, Automattic wants to inspire us all to be healthy. They are calling all Automatticians and WordPress users alike to do a worldwide 5 kilometer run, trot, skip, pogostick, something (in non-motorized fashion, at least) this week.
The official day for the Automattic 5k is this Sunday, April 10th. But they’ll take what they can get. After all, it can get tough to organize 80 people across the globe — not to mention the other 30 odd-million of us other yahoos — to do anything, much less excercise.
So instead of playing Halo or World of Warcraft, quilting, drinking oodles of beer, or just snoring PHP like you normally do, think about getting out and moving your body, in some fassion, about 3.1 good ‘ole American miles. Anytime. This week.
And please pester me to do the same.
Do tell, how will you be completing your 5k?
