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.

sleepyxzzzzinteresting marathon article

i probably cant do this but i can dream about it right? 4 years ago


I just completed my second marathon. The full marathon is substantially harder than the half marathon. The 30km mark is a serious challenge. Try not to hit the wall. 4 years ago


I think it would be a great way to stay in shape.. 5 years ago


I’ve always wanted to push myself to the limit and I think a marathon is about as far as I could push myself, physically. I can’t wait to do it. 5 years ago

ApacheSpeegsCopmlete a Marathon

I ran a 1/2 on no-notice while deployed to Baghdad, Iraq. I now have the urge to complete a whole one, with some training this time. I’m looking at doing with Marine Corps Marathon or NYC Marathon. 5 years ago

Star_ShadowComplete a marathon.

I’d love to have done this! I’m under no illusion that this will take a lot of hard work and effort, even though I have no intention of running! I’ve just looked online, and found that where I live they hold a walking marathon that only costs £20 to enter, and will be held on May 4th 2009. The last date for entry is the 17th April 2009, so I’ve got until then to decide if I’m fit enough to do this this year, or if I should aim for the year after instead. 6 years ago

PrimevereParis, 5 hours 00 minutes and 36 seconds

As I was 25, I decided to run a marathon by 30. I started with a 5K, then a few 10k, then a first half-marathon, another one, and after the fifth, it was time to run the marathon.
This was a great day, and even though my legs hurt in a way I had never experienced and it took 3 weeks to recover, well, I’m glad I did it.
It’s one of the key things I’m proud of in this life. 6 years ago


I have officially started training…I am on my 5th day…and I am so glad today is a rest day, because I can barely move! 6 years ago


Start training for the Baton Rouge marathon tomorrow…yay!! I figure this will keep me on track with studying for the CPA exam! 6 years ago

threedeeI did it :-)

I managed to complete a full marathon and I am very happy I did it! Next time I want to really RUN the marathon from start to finish without walking a single step. 6 years ago
