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.

Okay, before I can even think about training for one of these again, I need to get my 4-mile run down pat (not even close) and my bike ride up to 30 minutes (kinda close). 3 months ago

Poop. The half-marathon I ran last year is already full. It’s okay, I guess, since I’d be a few weeks short on training. Well, better look for another one.

EDIT There’s only a 25k at the end of April, and not another half-marathon until June 1. =/ At that point, maybe I should just train for the marathon. 12 months ago


Okay, now I’m a little bit obsessed with running these. It was so much fun, and I actually shaved nearly 30 minutes off of my time than what I was doing in training runs. It must have been race-day adrenaline, and I guess I don’t train that hard :) I ran it in 2:14, but now I want to run another one in under 2:00. 13 months ago

ahashemi2 weeks!

So, I’m signed up for the Big Sur half marathon on November 17th. I’m running it with my sister, so that makes it even better. Today I ran 14.1 miles! And now I feel super happy about everything because of the endorphins. 13 months ago

Was going to register for the Hell’s Gate half in October. I put it off to decide if I could devote the time to training or not. Good thing I did, because it turns out I have a performance that day! Hoping to find another this fall… 15 months ago


I can finish 10k without stopping (only hydration stops).
A friend who ran marathon last year says with this level you can finish half-marathon (with stops, no time limit). I will give it a try someday. 16 months ago

FerLomarcanGetting going again

So, after that little niggle, I’ve only got back running in the past few week. The physio (sensibly) has me working my training up slowly, so I’m currently running 2 mile short runs and 3.5 mile long runs. It feels like a long way to go before a half-marathon, but unlike a month or so ago, at least I believe it might actually happen now! Things are on the up! 21 months ago
