Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

lynner life is another backbend!

buckle at western states (read all 10 entries…)
it is said

that to buckle at states you need to break 5 hours at cool, and around 11 at miwok. i have a lot of work to do.
georgia has me on a plan: 1.5-2 hour tempo run, track workout of 12 800 repeats and hill repeats. 3 days of 100% effort to get strong and fast. and then, of course, my long runs on the weekend.
i think my foot can take it. this will be week #1.


Trauma_Junkie ready for recovery week, and data pushing.

yay week one

you can do it, just give the foot a stern talking to…

lynner life is another backbend!

here is how it went down

tuesday: fast andy’s tempo run, through rockridge, then up and into the cemetary. andy told me stories about the crypts and sculptures, to ease my suffering. apparently the black dahlia is buried there. i might be next if he has his way with me.

wednesday: could NOT even handle 12 of those repeats. i managed 2, then a fast mile (which, i figured was 2), then 2 more. not a fast twitch cell in my body, this all really hurt.

thursday. did i sign up for this?

today: finally got to those hills. claremont canyons for an hour. i must be soft.
