Running for fun & health

1&1 Internet Running Team

1&1 Running Team

When did I start?

It all started in June 2011, when I needed to do some exercise for my health due to a sedentary day-to-day schedule. During the first sessions indoors, I was barely able to run 500 m (besides the other exercises I was doing). Although I was not a fan of running, I discovered over time that I like to run. When it got warm outside, I started to run with friends / colleagues from my company, both in parks and at the National Stadium.

Where am I now?

After one and a half years of training, I am now able to run about 10 km in one hour. So, I joined

Cross country – on the 4th of November

1&1 and its partner in environmental activities (Viitor Plus) invited us to run at ChCrosul Paduriiildren’s Forest for a special cause (plant one tree for every new born).

Some of our colleagues accepted the challenge, and on Sunday morning they were ready to start running. We’ve had participants at the 3 km race, but most of them signed up for the 10 km race.

The atmosphere was great and the weather was on our side. My colleague Magda captured the entire event in a few beautiful words: “I did not think so many people would come on a Sunday morning to run and enjoy nature. It is like an oasis of normality …”.

Vlad was pleasantly surprised by the organization team, by the large number of participants, and the location event gave him the opportunity to explore the Tineretului Lake.

Tips for Efficient Meetings

In this article I’ll present some of the main elements in order to have efficient meetings.

In my career I’ve listened many times to people coming from or going to a meeting, and they were quite upset. The reasons varied, but generally they were all discontent “for having wasted one hour in vain”, or used to say “I shouldn’t have been there”, “what does he want now?”, “another monologue”, “I didn’t know how to get out of there sooner”, and so on…..

I could go on with the examples, but the first idea that gets to my mind is how such situations could be avoided. What would be the golden rules to avoid them?

1&1 is moving @

My story is about what happened in the last two years, about the new colleagues, and about the new office spaces.

The day I was hired I had almost 80 colleagues. My first day here was also the day when the second floor was taken. Though it was not fully equipped, people were already occupying the new space. It was quite confusing.

In a few days everything had changed: thing calmed down and plans of taking another floor started to appear.

A couple of months later the third floor offered its space for us. It had to be arranged quickly, because new colleagues were coming every day.

The last year was the busiest: further three floors were taken, and the needs of arranging them differed. The teams were bigger and the ways of working also differed, so we faced the challenge of finding best solutions of space arrangements.

Right now, one of the floors gets a new face. Stay tuned to see what happens. 🙂

Why do you bike to work?

….“For fun and for workout. “ (said one of our colleagues)

Since there were already colleagues who were coming to work riding their bicycles, the need of arranging a safe place for their means of transportation appeared.

We needed to find a space, near the building, accessible, easily guarded by the people responsible with security, and so, started the searching for the best place and the first discussions with the building administration.

In March this year, the bicycle racks were installed and ready to be used.

What about you? Do you ride your bike to work? Start NOW!
