rhinobrink has a new job in a new country
42.2km is a great test of endurance and dedication.
I’ve run one marathon to date on 01 July 2007, but I’d really like to be in a position to do this each and every year.
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.

I didn’t see this entry before, I just asked you if you’d run a marathon yet….LOL
Yes, just one marathon so far. I also remember not being able to walk. It’s funny now, but it was sheer agony at the time.
And thanks for sending your blog. It was nice to take a peek, well done. Looks like an entertaining story til next time. All the best with the co-captain duties!
I didn’t walk for 2 days after the marathon. I pulled the hip flexor and it KILLED me. But I still knew I’d want to do another one….lol.
I’m glad you liked my blog. It started out as a personal journal but now it’s my connection to other runners. I highly reccommend having one.
I have the running blahs these last 2 weeks. I can’t seem to get into it lately….frustrating.
All the best getting over the running blahs .. I think I’m getting back on track – pardon the pun. Just taking it easy for a little while does wonders some times.
I did blog for a little while, but lost all my entries and backups, so was too disappointed to start again. But I will again one day.
Speaking of disappointed, I ran yesterday and found the distance harder than I imagined. And my time was extremely slow. That was, until I realised the gmap I created was in miles not kilometres like I’m used to. I did 10.4 miles in 1.5hrs – which I thought was just 10.4 KILOMETRES (around 6.4 miles). Pretty dopey.
I did that a few weeks ago! Only I thought I was running a 4 mile loop at 25 minutes. It was THREE miles! I was so upset. You must have been thrilled to see you are faster than you thought!
