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.

Chicago Marathon: 5:30

superstardedNew Pace Group

Well, I did my trial run and placed in the 12:30 mile group. I wanted 12:00 but 12:30 is pretty good too. I’m excited that I moved up from my old 14:00 mile group from last year.

I’m more in the neighborhood of 5:45 for the marathon at this pace. I might move up a pace group later this summer or I might just go nuts towards the end of the marathon to get to 5:30. Or I might just settle for 5:45. We’ll see.

I really think that my weight is keeping me back from my running goals. Next year I want to run 10:00 miles. Thats a big jump from 12:30. I’m more or less the same weight as I was last year and I still managed to bump up my pace. To get myself to the next level for the 2009 marathon I’m really going to focus on losing weight. I’m hoping to get down to 200 pounds by the end of the year. 6 years ago

superstardedTraining Starts Next Weekend!

Hopefully I’ll place in the right pace group. I’m kind of nervous. We’ll see what happens.

I’ve found that consistency is the key to running success. Getting enough rest and eating a healthy diet make all the difference in meeting my running goals. I’ve been unemployed for over a month now. As a result I’ve been stress eating and not sticking to a regular sleep schedule. So I’m going to work on cutting that shit out. 6 years ago
