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.

Walk 500 miles, then walk 500 more, just to be the one who walked 1000 miles. (read all 7 entries…)
I reached mile 1000

@ 5:33 pm today. A beautiful, sunny spring day on the coast. Two friends joined me for my last few miles to reach 1000, and the last 2 miles we spent walking on the beach and or coastline paths. (What made finally meeting this even more sweet is that today is my birthday. I planned out/modified my walk schedule the last few weeks, and walked less on certain days so that I could walk my one thousandth mile on this particular day. I set a birthday goal for myself every year. Some years I meet them, some I don’t. I am very pleased to meet my birthday goal this year.)

It took me nine months. I started clocking my miles in mid June of 2011, when I bought a pedometer for a walk challenge at work. I averaged 111 miles per month, 27.75 miles per week. Some weeks I did more or less depending on a variety of factors from duration of work days, to social engagements, to non compliant weather, to just plain not wanting to or conversely, wanting to go farther on any given day.

Now, on to mile 1500! 2000!
