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.

it rained

It rained the day of the skate and I decided I was ill prepared to attempt it especially in those conditions. This isn’t a priority for me now – probably will not happen in 2008 either.

OMG - it's only a few weeks away

So, the people who put this on graciosly changed my entry to 2007 because I had an conflict in 2006. The didn’t need to do that but did anyway. Nice. Unfortunately, I’m not 30 pounds heavier – eeeek, and WAY out of shape. Somehow in my mind I still think I’m going to do this. Hmmmm, Tough or Insane? Maybe both?


I just registered for St Paul Inline Marathon in Aug.

I’m comitted now – go me!
There’s still snow/ice all over and will be for a while. Will probably not skate train until May. I’ve got all summer – shouldn’t be a problem.


found Also found dates for three possible events. St Paul Aug 20, 2006, Northshore Sept 17, and Big Granite in Ashland June 18. Have to pick then plan a training schedule.

Two Harbors to Duluth

Route of the Grandma’s Marathon in MN. There is a rollerblade version on a different weekend. I don’t think my knees/ankles could take running a marathon but I do think I could train for a Rollerblade. I’ll have to get it on my calendar and set a schedule for training.
