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.

Running with the Bulls in Pamplona

I did it 3 times (July 9,10 and 11) of this year.

It was fantastic!

The real fun was in the bull ring where you get to play “dodge the bulls” for 20 or 30 minutes after each run. However, you must run with the bulls and get into the bull ring before they close the gates (behind the last bull). Position yourself along the last 400 yards of the run so you don’t miss this part.

Its like being a rodeo clown along with 200 other crazy thrill seekers. I highly recommend it but stay away from the bulls they release into the ring for the first minute or two and wait until they get tired and slow down. There were some serious injuries this year when people jumped in front of 900 pound bulls running full speed.

The real fun was in the bull ring where you get to play “dodge the bulls” for 20 or 30 minutes. If you get into the bull ring before they close the gates behind the last bull, you can do this. Its like being a rodeo clown along with 200 other crazy trill seekers. I highly recommend it.
