Last Updated on August 6, 2021 by Rat Race Running
Hi Reader –
This is my very first blog post on how I will try to squeeze my running hobby in my busy corporate schedule to promote good health and be the best runner I can be.
As of the writing, I am a 26-year-old, Electronics Engineer by profession, IT Guy by trade. I am currently working for one of the US Fortune 500 companies based in the Philippines.
According to recent studies, sitting for too long is dangerous, if not fatal, to our health and well-being. Here is where running comes in.
Running is one of the few sports that lets you be active while needing the least amount of equipment to start. All you need is the road, your will to run, and good running shoes (also optional for barefoot runners.).
Join me in my quest for health, wealth, and peace of mind through RUNNING’s life-changing effect.
Three years after starting this blog, it transitioned from exclusively writing about the sport of running into a wider scope of life.
I find it funny and even ironic that something as simple as writing to relieve my stress a few years ago can transform into something more.
After writing more than fifty articles (current count: 53), my horizon expanded. My vocabulary and skills also improved, and I became more confident in writing for a larger audience.
I can still remember when I was starting. I was so afraid to share my posts on Facebook. During that time, I have my doubts if what I am saying is right or if anyone will even read them.
Fortunately, there were people who supported and encouraged me to continue writing.
I’ll update this post after my 100th article to see how far I can went.
Currently, I am writing more about personal finance, running away from the rat race, education, culture, and many more.
I don’t want to box the scope of this blog in a single niche. Instead, I want to write about life from a wider point-of-view.
I hope that I can share my fascination with the written word and use this talent to share God’s love and His salvation.
Update (After 100 Posts):
I can’t believe that from 53 posts last December 2020, it already double. I learned a lot from this journey and the importance of consistency.
Writing is really just breathing out what we inhale through reading, observation, and immersion. Currently, I have 160 drafts (mostly titles) that I hope to finish soon.
I am just so excited to share this journey with everyone. I thank God for the wisdom, provision, and strength that He continuously provides. I dedicate everything to Him.
I’ll update this post again after a breakthrough or reach 250 articles – whichever comes first. 🙂
