I started writing in early 2017 as a form of therapy from all the work and life-related stresses that I was experiencing back then. I even managed to write 18 articles until 2018 before life gets on the way.
Two years later, in 2020, while stuck in isolation due to the pandemic, I decided to write again. I never imagined that it would turn into something more.
Seventeen months later, I finally breached the 100 posts mark. With consistency, I was able to publish at least one article a week. Here are the ten most-read articles of Rat Race Running.

The rat race is one of the main themes of this blog, and this post is the first time I wrote about my journey and frustration towards the rat race. Hopefully, more and more people will learn to identify the tell-tale signs of the endless cycle of the rat race.
