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.

Georgia and Arizona

Yes, I’ve been there before, so no real progress.
But I can add Arizona to the states now where I ran a marathon:

California (Napa Valley)
Florida (Space Coast 2x)
Massachussettes (Boston)
Arizona (Rock’n’Roll)

No Ohio

Too bad we didn’t go. Jon qualified, but it just didn’t work out. I’m not seeing any more new states in the near future, but some more traveling in Florida.
I’d like go on a long bike ride with Jon after the Rock’n’Roll Marathon in January, riding from Charleston back home. That would put South Carolina on the list. But we’ll have to see how that goes.


I hope that Jon qualifies for the 4-people-10k-team so we can go to the Air Force Marathon in Dayton, Ohio in September.


On a road trip to California to pick up some horses with Stephanie we drove through Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California.


I’ve always been fascinated by that name.
We’re going there tomorrow.

Two more off my list!

I landed in Washington D.C. last night and am staying at a hotel in Virginia.

Maryland, Virginia & Washington D.C.

Those are the states I’m planning to visit next week.


I’m in Savannah today with my husband and my parents.
