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.

hawaii won!

Did a brick today

I started out on the stationary bike for 30 mins of hills, then immediately jumped on the treadmill and did 2 miles @ 10:00mi pace. Whoobie! My first brick! I finished the day with 20 mins in the pool…was able to do 10 laps (250 yards) in 9:30. Slow & steady!!

Miscalculated the swim

Ok…so i found out the pool i’ve been using is 25yards and NOT 50meters. So instead of 6 laps it will be 12. egads! i just have to buckle down and train since i’m already committed!

Entered a Sprint Tri

4/29/07: 300yard swim, 18mi bike, 2mi run. The running will be easiest, since I already do 5k’s and 8k’s and have the right muscle-memory for it. The swim is ok…nothing some training can’t knockdown. The bike is the longest leg and will be the most physically challenging endurance-wise.
