Day 50: Help Each Other

“I didn’t realize how hard the race would be.  Not just for the runners but also all the workers.”

I am going to be the 50th person to to complete the race but I didn’t realize just how many people behind the scenes working together to put the race on. I want people to know about this race, and how many people it took to put it all together.”

“The support of the Taiwanese community helped me a lot.  I realized that even though the race is called self-transcendence, but it cannot happen without the collaboration of a lot of people helping each other.  Now I feel I know more of the wisdom behind it.  It is only because of team work and people working together.”

“I am just a small person.  But the impact of my achievement that I have had on people is beyond my imagination.  I feel more people need to know about the race.”

“I never met Sri Chinmoy, but I feel that when he created this race he must have had some thought behind it.”

Wei Ming feels touched and inspired by the meaning of Self-transcendence the very meaning of the race and what he accomplished here in 48 days, 11 hours, 52 minutes setting a standard for all of Asia and older runners everywhere.
