I have joined the Automatic Worldwide WP 5k and am going to commit to a 5k run each day from yesterday, Oct. 26th to Sunday, Nov. 1. It’s not that I’m an overachiever or anything, it’s just that on Nov. 4th, I’m having a cataract operation and have been told – No Exercise! – So, I’ll do as much as I can, while I can 😀

See you on the road, treadmill, pathways, anywhere there’s a 5k run in it! 

Day 1

The first of the 5k Runs for the next week was done in the afternoon on a beautifully wooded, winding, moderately flat road. Along with my trusty running partner, Mr. Thor who’s stoked to be doing it too!!! And I should add, charted on RunKeeper.com

Day 2 

My Second Day of the ‘Running with Automatic Worldwide WP 5k
was done on a treadmill
It was late in the afternoon and didn’t have the light or time to go on the roads.

My trusty ‘Running Partner’ was there at my side once again.

The view was stationary but still lovely.

I did have to pause to take a picture as my running on the treadmill gave a very distorted picture…

Then we were finished for that day!

And the reading said it all.

5k or 3.10 miles done.


Tomorrow is another day.

Another run.

Day 3

One more day, one more run on the treadmill.
Not my favourite, but just not nice out there. Tons of cold and wind, so the treadmill it is.
And the view isn’t that bad.

Day 4

Sadly, Day 4 is ANOTHER treadmill day
It was dark outside and miserable.
So, treadmill it is

No pictures of the view because it would just be black night.


My running partner was beside me all the way


Last day used Nov. 4/15

See you tomorrow – hopefully out on the road


Day 5

I Climbed To The Top Of The Sky

WP5k - Day5 -Looking Back Down

I climbed to the top of the sky
Came back down
Don’t know why.

Maybe to climb again
Share the time
Feel the view
See the height
The deep dark blue.

I climbed to the top of the sky
Looked around
Came back down.
