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.

my damn knee

is preventing me from progressing in so many of my goals!! this is a major one of them.
i haven’t run since the premature decision of participating in a triathlon, or more accurately, of intensifying my training in what seems, in hindsight, like an irresponsible way.
it is almost 3 weeks now, and it really freaks me out that all i gained in such a long and excruciating manner will be lost. that i will have to start over. counting the minutes of continuous running…
can anybody lend me an advice? currently i am planning on swimmin 3 or maybe 4 times a week instead ofthe 2 times i do now. i am sure it won’t keep my running fitness, but at least i will maintain some of the overall fitness. right? :o(

from nothing to 5K

I am working on this for 3 months now.
I have never been an endurance athelete (or person for that matter…) and even though i used to play at the national handball league as a teenager, a back surgery set me back, and for 10 years i did almost no exercise.

for the passed 3 months i have been working on improving my running. and from not being able to even WALK 1Km, i am now combining walking and running for 45 minutes 3 times a week to reach about 5.3Km each time, and managing to run a full kilometer non-stop at a reasonable speed and not roll over and die.

It’s a start!
