Today, inside my bubble ...

The Big Blue Marble ... Earth ... the place we live and enjoy the many wonders of God's creations. Are God's creations on Earth only meant for me and me alone? Do we need to be selfish or can we share all the abundance amongst friends and foes? I would like to think that the big blue marble is more than enough for everyone ... you and me.

That' why my affirmation of the week was "This World Is Mine! And Yours, And Yours, And Yours. More For All And Less For None!"

As usual, I was the 'self-appointed' photographer at the McDonald's Olympic Day Run this morning, held at Dataran Merdeka, Kuala Lumpur. Droves of courageous people turned up for the run, young and old, new and old faces ... all came with a believe that they can do it! A 7km run, a 5km run ... they are determine to reach the finish line. Catch their pics at Kota Kemuning Pacers.

While taking these shots, it is amazing to see how everyone of us can so easily share this time and space together, irrespective of race and religion ... 'ONE MALAYSIA' ... and yet, within the smaller units of society ... at home or the workplace or community, people still fight for their own selfish gains. Why?

Pondering on this, I must say that I'm so proud of Kota Kemuning Pacers, the up and coming running network in my neighbourhood. It has brought together people from all walks with differing characters and attitudes through one common desire ... to stay fit and healthy through one passion, Running. It's so awesome that these people could so generously extend their friendship and support to one another without hesitation.




Anziariq Anuar, this one's for you! You have so unselfishly forego your finisher medal today in order to lend your support to your fellow runner. Not only she's grateful, we all are! Kota Kemuning Pacers will definitely grow in leaps with you as one of its member.



Digg!

Wenny,

Thank for the post. Running for myself is good. Helping someone else to run is even better. For me, there is a whole lot more in running than a medal.
