About US

I’m Eric, someone who’s new into running.  It took me two years before I finally joined my first 3k race.  It all started with long slow walks together with my wife.  Now, after 40+ lbs ago, I am actively joining running clinics and Sunday 5km (3 weeks ago, I started to join 10km races already – rba) races together with my running buddy Emilee (a.k.a. my wife). And we shall continue running –  because we love it and we enjoy the benefits that we get from it.

Fast forward to 2009:

This is starting to be the running journal of Emilee and Eric.  So instead of creating a new one, we decided to have this as our running blog.  Noticed the title of this page? It was once named as “About me”, now it was changed to “About US”.

Oh, by the way, before we thought of “converting” this as our blog we thought of launching a new one “Xtra-Xtra”.  What’s with Xtra-Xtra?  Just read on some of the details below:

Whos’ Eric? One of the Xtra. Before we started running, his clothese are all Xtra-Xtra Large.  Though he can’t remember if it reached Xtra Xtra Xtra Large.  Now, more than a year of running, he’s now down to Xtra Large.  Sometimes, Eric can fit into a Large size of shirt.  Talking about improvement.

What about Emilee?  The better Xtra.  Same story you would think? Yah, as a result of running, she can now fit into an Xtra Small size of shirt.  All because of her extra effort to be fit and stay health. It was really a wonderful achievement!

As you see, this blog shall account our experiences with the sport that we came to love.


(When they are not running…Eric is a Mechanical Engineer.  But he is now into Sales and Marketing of Compressed Air System solutions in Atlas Copco – that’s why this blog was originally named Running Beyond Air (beyond the Air Compressors).  Emilee is an Industrial Psychologist.  She is into Human Resources Management in Airspeed International Corp.  Both of them are into Training and Quality Management Systems. They are blessed with a twin daughter and a son)
