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.

DamiTrice Happy Year of the Horse!

run 3 miles in 30 minutes or less (read all 53 entries…)
5/1*5 tuesday

aiming for Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday this week and then next week starting on the Monday/Wednesday/Friday/Saturday for 4 times a week.

Doing okay. Still going.
Almost didn’t go yesterday because I got up so much later than I had intended, but was glad I went in the end.
Every time I start up again I feel embarrassed about being out there when I’m so out of shape. Once I’ve been going for a while I’m so focused on the run itself that I don’t think about the other. So just keep going and stop worriting about it so much!

oh, and no longer walk breaks this time, so improvement over last week. oh, and (suddenly positives are coming to mind) felt toward the end that I was actually getting my form a bit under control again. sometimes I have trouble connecting my brain w/my body in an intentional way that helps me correct the issues I notice, but it was sort of working yesterday.


DamiTrice has gotten 2 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
