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.

list my 43 reasons to run (read all 28 entries…)
Baby it cold outside.....

We had group run tonight. It’s not a normal night for running. An arctic cold came through the area. At run time it was 9 deg F. I have run in temps this cold before, but it has been awhile. It is hard to stay warm when it’s this cold, but if you keep moving and you are dressed right, it can be done. After the first mile, I was warm and fine. For the rest of the run, I actually felt good and thought it was nice out.

And that is what I love; to get out there, when conditions are less than prime, and discover you can do it. It is not impossible. You just have to try.

That's good you got out

walking on a cold night can be tougher than running. It is harder to work enough to keep warm.

So now, getting out should be easier, right?

Keep at it!!!
