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.

How to do the Couch to 5k running plan


seeking~serenity is eternally grateful for 43. Thank you, everyone! ♥ Same name on PC.


Yay for you!!! (: (:

I have started the C25K program once or twice, but have yet to complete it, so you are now a part of my inspiration.

My mom is 50, and has never enjoyed running (hates it, rather), but I really want to get her to start with me to help her lose weight and gain confidence and a healthy workout lifestyle.

I was the same way my mom is with running…I loathed it, with every fiber if my being, but this gives you so much time to work with the learning curve of running, that it is fully doable!

I am going to read my mom your story here to ease her mind. I thank you for writing this and give you loads of higj-fives for getting through it, even with your past knee surgeries!!! Also, I have heard of ChiRunning, but had forgotten about it. Thanks for reminding me. I will check it out again.
