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.

Nike She runs the night

I ran this race last Thursday. This was a 13k womens only event run through the centennial park, Sydney at night. In the week leading up to it, I had a load of niggling aches and pains, particularly in my left knee and really was losing faith in my ability to complete the 21k 2 weeks from now.
But I ran the S#$5t out of that race. 71 minutes where I was aiming for about 80/85. It’s true, the race can make you push yourself much more that you ever do in training. It really has given me some new found confidence.
Today I ran 14.5 k, further than I’ve ever run before. Needless to say I can barely off the couch today. Next week is my final training week, so I’m focusing on eating well, sleeping a lot and no wine (this is the most difficult bit). Still full of nerves, but just gotta have faith that if I follow the training program, I’ll be able to reach my goal.
