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.

jet91st run training log

10/10/2012 (Wednesday) 7:30pm
Dry, still, not too cold
Warm-up: Fast walk 0.6 mile
Jog: 2 mile
Fast jog (keeping up with some other runners out on their training!):
0.5 mile
Jog: 0.7 mile
During: Good. Was focusing on maintaining a comfortable pace and getting a steady comfortable jog. Until I got competitive and decided to chase the runners! That got me to maximum effort – but I kept going and slowed down my pace until I’d fully recovered.
After: My legs were like jelly for a bit – although I kept walking until I’d cooled down. Then I did stretches before getting in the car. I got a stitch in my upper-right side (ribcage) during the warm-down walk.
My legs were pretty stiff and sore (at the top near the hips) on the second day after running. 2 years ago

jet93.2 mile run

As part of the beginnings of my running training for the 10k in 7 weeks, I did a preliminary run of 3.2 miles (wow – I just calculated it!) – that’s more than I thought!
Plus as a warm-up / warm-down I did a 1.2 mile fast/slow walk (wow that’s more than I thought too!)
I haven’t done any running for months. But I have been going to circuits and swimming every week – which has probably helped my fitness. I’ve done hardly any walking recently though. I’m really happy with this.
I drank a small cappuccino before heading out. Perhaps the caffeine helped?!
The run along the prom has notable headwind. Getting stronger once on the new prom.
Hmm that was a fair bit of mileage. The race course is apparently 10k – which is 6.5. miles? The course seems a lot longer than advertised. I’m going to check it out on google maps! 2 years ago


I was wondering if I should mark this goal done. I have done many sprints to catch bus/tram/train, meetings, or my classes.
Does it count as running? Obviously yes! But it is cheating.
This is not about how many goals have been marked done, it is not like to-do list that we would like to finish them as soon as possible. It should be worth doing and meaningful, otherwise is pointless. 2 years ago
