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.

kkvh3989Change of plan

Made the brave decision not to return to rowing or coxing this year. My stress fracture is healed, but am going to persue other things for now. A future without the big boats seems rather scary, so I may re-evaluate after summer. 6 years ago

kkvh3989Surprisingly a silver lining..

This week I’ve found that just because I can’t go back to proper training until after Christmas doesn’t mean that I can’t do other things.. I’ve been teaching and so doing some simplified circuits with one of my housemates and also some very light running.. So by helping her, I’ve been able to help myself. 7 years ago

kkvh3989Going backwards..

On a further two week ban from any form of training, and even have to keep walking to a minimum. Grim.. 7 years ago

kkvh3989Slowly but surely..

Did one piece from Chiswick Bridge to Hammersmith before swapping out.. It’s slow progress, very slow.. 7 years ago

kkvh3989Bruises galore!

I tried my first circuits session last night after three weeks of recovery time.. Our coach reset the individual exercises, and, as a result of this and not having done any ‘proper’ exercise for three weeks, I’m the proud sporter of bruises of the multi-coloured variety on my knees, back, hips, elbows.. Brilliant.

Foot pain not too great today, which is good, but it did object last night. I guess I’ll be back to coxing tomorrow.. Oh well.. 7 years ago

kkvh3989Now the other foot has gone wrong too..

Missing rowing desperately (mostly the water outings and social aspect) and it’s only been five days so far! Felt I was finally getting back into training after the summer, and now my foot has a possible stress fracture, and I can’t train! First the ballet and now this.. Grr.. I suppose it’s coxing for me from now on. 7 years ago

somnambulistNot quite rowing,

but close. Looks like I’m coxing the team that’s going to Head of the Charles. I think just being involved is enough, so I’ll cross it off. 8 years ago


I really miss being part of a team and having to stick to a schedule and stay fit. These are things that I don’t do very well on my own. Though, if push came to shove, I could do without 5:30 am practices. ;) 8 years ago
