New Year’s Resolutions: Find Out What 2017 Has Instore for the IAMRUNBOX Team!

It’s that time of year again, and if you, like 50 per cent of the population, have made a New Year’s Resolution this year, now is the time to stay strong, stay focused, and make 2017 your best year ever!

Whether you want to lose weight, stop smoking, spend more time with loved ones, or start living an active lifestyle by running to work, a new year provides the perfect starting point to make a change. And to show you that we practice what we preach, the team at IAMRUNBOX have decided to share their New Year’s Resolutions for 2017… and it looks like there’s going to big changes here at HQ over the next 12 months!

New Year’s Resolutions: Kirill


As an active lifestyle practitioner, our Founder, CEO and driving force Kirill already lives life to the full, but he’s set to do a whole lot more in 2017!  He has a whopping list of 10 New Year’s Resolutions, including using video calls instead of phone calls, competing in one activity outside of his comfort zone every week, running a sub-3 marathon, completing a half Ironman race, and saying ‘no’ more often.  So, if anyone was thinking about asking him for a pay rise this week… you might want to wait a while longer!

Kirill also wants to work for at least one month in a different country this year, he intends to talk to 4 out of every 5 people he meets, and he will communicate more with IAMRUNBOX fans by engaging via social media each time he travels.

New Year’s Resolutions: Christopher


Much like Kirill, our CTO Christopher enjoys an active lifestyle, and when he is not busy with managing the ever-growing technical needs of IAMRUNBOX, our computer science expert loves nothing more than climbing, hiking, running, and cycling to work.  Christopher also has a long list of New Year’s Resolutions for 2017, including learning how to weld, visiting a new country in Europe, talking more often to strangers, learning Dutch, and improving his Spanish.

However, he has one New Year’s Resolution that we’ve never heard of before… he’d like to gain 4kg in weight! I guess not everyone has ‘Christmas gains’ to contend with at this time of the year!

New Year’s Resolutions: Irina


Taking care of our finances, our CFO Irina brings high-energy and critical thinking to the team, which helps us make more balanced business decision. Irina has big changes in mind for 2017, and her list of 10 New Year’s Resolutions includes learning a new language, waking up earlier, travelling more, spending more time outdoors, and socialising more.

Irina also plans to covert more problems into opportunities in 2017, and do things today instead of postponing until tomorrow… time is money, after all!

New Year’s Resolutions: Alexandr


Marketing extraordinaire Alexandr is the powerhouse behind the IAMRUNBOX marketing strategy. With an academic background in both the UK and Sweden, he knows what it takes to grow brand awareness and transform new businesses into global brands. Like the rest of the IAMRUNBOX team, Alexandr has committed to a list of New Year’s Resolutions this year, including learning Swedish, playing badminton, and reading two business books every month.

Alexandr also wants to explore Sweden, visit at least 3 new countries in Europe, and do activities outside his comfort zone… we cannot wait to find out what they are!

IAMRUNBOX Team New Year’s Resolutions

If the above wasn’t enough, the IAMRUNBOX Team have created a list of collective New Year’s Resolutions that they will all adhere to as a group in 2017.  They will work-out during their lunchbreaks 3 times a week, they will learn a new language, they will sign up for a team race, and perhaps, most importantly of all, they will continue to THINK BIG!

We hope our list of New Year’s Resolutions have inspired you to make a list of your own.  Are you going to be making big changes in 2017? If so, get in touch. We’d love to hear from you!
