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.

LoveTheRainTook a long walk today

The reality is that running isn’t for me. I do a bunch of other stuff and this activity just isn’t right now. I covered miles today, and I’m totally fine with the fact that that was walking and not running. I’m giving up on this, but don’t see that as a failure in any way. 2 years ago

LoveTheRainJanuary is over and I didn't do this

That is disappointing. 2 years ago

Robin ChungNike Lunar shoes - my recommendations.

Hello runners!

Being an avid runner myself (half marathons) I have to say that shoes are essential. There’re different type of footwear that excel at various types of runners and trainings. To give you some handles on this, here’s a short list:

Short runs/sprints
For shorter runs you will want a narrow shoe that is light and shapes to your feet. You might want to try shoes like the: Nike LunarHaze

Longer runs/support shoes
If you overpronate or underpronate during your runs, or want a shoe that goes a long way without irritation, you may want to look at the Nike Lunarglide or Lunareclipse

Nike Free 3.0 – 5.0 – 7.0
These are very special shoes. They are very light and simulate a barefoot experience. You either love them or you hate them. Nike uses an internal numbering system to determine the amount of stability. 3 is the lightest shoe with the least amount of ballast, while 7 is slightly higher/heavier. In comparison 13 is considered a normal shoe. Here’s my review of the Nike free 3.0 v2

Good luck on buying the right shoe and finding a painless run! 3 years ago

Hobby_GirlHere's what had happened...

I wear yoga pants all the time, right? Some are significantly more flowey than others,right?

Well, I was dashing somewhere in the house for some reason and caught my toe in the hem of a pant leg – who would or could make this up?? – and fell hard, bending said toe the wrong direction and ultimately landing on my hip.

I’m not even bruised but the spots I landed on sure kept me awake last night. Please, teacher, can this be my get-outa-gym pass for the past few days? 5 years ago

Hobby_GirlLead foot

Oh man, why do I want to pound my joints like this? Because I’ve always imagined myself able to just go outside and head in a direction – no need for a gym or equipment. My feet are so heavy when I run that it’s been impossible. I just read ChiRunning and hope the whole pelvic rotation/loose ankle thing works. If I can achieve lift-off before the end of December the ability to run will validate the end of cigarettes.

Run Hobby_Girl, run! 5 years ago
