About the Author
The author of the Rat Race Running Blog is an electronics engineer by profession and a teacher by vocation.
He used to work in a Fortune Global 500 company in the Philippines. It didn’t take long before realizing that life in a corporate setup is like running a race he can’t win.
The Rat Race.
The rat race is the never-ending and life-sucking cycle of paychecks and expenses and often the competitive struggle to climb the proverbial corporate ladder.
He finally escaped the corporate rat race in 2019 to pursue a different calling in the academic field. He envisions that his actions will serve as a stepping stone toward obtaining more freedom in the future.
This blog is a journal, an open message, and a reminder that there is more to life than work.
He is a frustrated marathoner, mountain climber, bookworm, blogger, and personal finance advocate.
He sees himself as an ambivert and a multipotentialite but, most importantly, a sinner saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ.
