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.

Yayyyyyy! This is the third day without any pain! I can take the stairs again! Since a month the first time I enjoyed my walk to work! I am so happy soon I can restart running! Once again YAAAY

The Past

I started running the first time when I was 17. And I loved it! It was my possibility to forget about all the things that I hated about my life. I also joined a Dancegroup. Then I fell ill with depression because I have been bullied plus I was in a abusive relationship with a sick bastard. That was when I gained 30Kg/60Lbs in just 3month an I started hateing my body.

Then I started running again when I was 21 but I soon had to quit because my body was still struggeling with the huge amount of wheight.

I started dieting and soon lost 15Kg. But then I hit a plateau wich is where I am now.

In September 2011 I restarted running and soon improved. I still love the feeling – I simply love everything about running!

Sadly the next thing that happende was that I injured my knee badly while working. For about one week I couldn´t do anything.
Now it is better but not fully healed. Doc doesn´t want me to restart running before New Year. He wants it to be 150% healed. I am struggeling with this because I want to run so bad. I just bought a nice Winter Thight and a Winter Sweater for running and was so excited to run in it!
