From Jamie's Philippines Pics

We have also had the opportunity to travel to some amazing places in China, Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines, and Bali. We have archived all of our travels and living experiences abroad; and if you wish, you can read about our adventures by finding the archives on the right of this page and by checking our Photo Album.

We appreciate all of our family and friends who have stayed in touch and emailed us with encouraging words throughout the year. We hope you will continue to keep us in your thoughts as we continue our adventure of living abroad teaching at an international school. For those who have stumbled upon our site, check out the "About Eric and Jamie" section on the right for more information.

Thanks for checking us out!

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness."
- Mark Twain

"Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends."
- Maya Angelou

5K in the Books!

After 10 weeks, Jamie and I completed our first 5K. We have been waking up at 5:00 am 3 days a week and using this training program entitled Personal Running Trainer. It is an audio program that provides music and has steps for running by telling you when to walk and when to run. You progress through weeks until you are finally running about a 5K. Jamie and I started back in January and due to illness, travel, and alarms, we have taken 10 weeks instead of the recommended 8 weeks. That was fine with us considering we both definitely aren't runners, usually hate to do it, and didn't want to burn out.

We are just proud of ourselves for sticking to it. Our next goal is to continue running and increase our speed with the 5K and perhaps move on to a 10K.
