I just learned of this today. I’m so sorry to see this site go. Now I realize I had a little place in my heart for 43Things. I met wonderful people here, and it helped me accomplish fine things. Now I’m writing words that will vanish into the ether of the web. It’s a little death, isn’t it? Good-bye, old friends. 43Things has joined what the Romans used to call the majority. Farewell.

When we were ready to get out, we noticed a woman was strolling along the beach with two loose Doberman Pinschers. So there we were, six naked men in cold dark water. We … Read how I did it…
How I did it: I followed the Couch-to-5K running plan with the app on my iPhone, registered for The Color Run 5K when they were in town, and voila! The CT5K program was very good and certainly prepared me for the run, which turned out to be quite manageable. Read how I did it…
How I did it: The biggest obstacle to becoming a vegetarian is identifying good sources of protein. We usually get protein from dead animals, but there are other good sources: beans, tofu, nuts, eggs (yes, I eat dairy products), whey, etc. There are veggie burgers, sausage patties and other things that are tasty and good to have in moderation. I resolved that I would not be crazy about this, and would eat meat if there was nothing else available and I … Read how I did it…
I’ve written about this in another entry. In 90 days with Tony Horton’s P90X program from Beachbody, I lost 20 lbs, reduced my body fat by more than half, improved my strength and endurance, and became even more good-looking! Try it. It’s hard, very hard, but it works.
I wrote about how I ran The Color Run under my goal, “Run a 5K.” This is how I prepared for it. Highly recommended.
