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.

Complete Spartan Sprint in 2.5 hours
Technically I did this...

Okay, so I did a special Spartan Sprint this weekend at Citizen’s Bank Park in 1:43 but it wasn’t the one I was thinking of when I wrote this goal. I know that I was referring to the Sprint at Blue Mountain so I am not putting that I completed this goal yet!

get married (read all 9 entries…)
I stopped worrying about it.

This goal was once in my “I gave up” list but once I stopped caring, I met the perfect guy and now we’re married!

We both had the attitude that marriage and love were not important but having fun and meeting cool people was and we let our guard down and let things happen organicly. Best thing I ever did for my relationship AND for myself!

I’ve been doing so well with running that my husband registered me for the TOUGH MUDDER on 9/9. I’ve been training 4x a week and hope to be ready!

Spartan Race

So I did a Spartan Race, which is 5 miles up a mountain with 25 obstacles. Its only about 1/3rd of the Tough Mudder but its still a HUGE step in the right direction!

Save money...

I think I need to start a new savings account just for this and sock money away. Tommy will be totally surprised when we have money for this trip!

My main goal is to do the tough mudder.

I tried to run 3.8 miles on Saturday and had to walk more than I liked. Tonight, I’m trying 3.5 miles. I hope to be able to run the 3.5 miles without stopping by the end of June.

After a long struggle, we did it! It was tough and we had the WEIRDEST issues come up but we took them in stride and kept pushing foward. I love my new home and wouldn’t have it any other way!
