I must have temporarily lost the plot, because I appear to have signed up for a marathon…

Wanna do a 5km run over the t’interweb?

I have just stumbled across this blog organising a Worldwide WordPress 5k run. I absolutely flippin’ love this idea.

With the aim to get people moving more, and in effect, exercise “together” even if you’re on the other side of the world, it is such a good motivator, and a fab way to communicate with the online running community – one I’ve never been involved in, but hope to be in upcoming months. Get my geek on yeeeah.

In a nutshell, the blog states:

“You can run, walk, or skip. It’s up to you. There’s no time limit and there’s just one requirement: that you participate!

The blog is hoping for participants to run on Sunday 10th April (this week) but also states that it is open from 4th – 10th April to give some flexibility. I think I will do mine on Sunday when I’ve got some free time to do an outdoor run.

As soon as I have decided on a road route, and charged up my camera, I’m going to post details of my own personal fun run right here in the next few days. If you fancy doing it too, use the tag wwwp5k so we can all have a nosey at each other’s efforts. Really excited to see posts from other WordPress users on this one. Should be a giggle.
