August 2021 Review

August 31st, 2021

My time in Montana is coming to an end—I’ll be spending the next few days camping in Glacier National Park, then heading back down to Atlanta. This past summer really was something special—Livingston and the whole state just have great vibes.

Goal Tracking

  • 🟢 Get 1% faster. Not much to say here—I hit this goal and it’s the offseason! Since preseason is coming up again, I’ll probably change this goal next month.
  • 🔴 50% less discretionary spending. I spent just 1.8% less this month than my 2020 average. In retrospect, expecting to hit this goal while in Montana was probably foolish—I’ve been way more lax about eating out and paying for experiences than normal.
  • 🔴 One hour of solitary free time a day. Still not tracking this—clearly I’m not prioritizing this goal. A good lesson for next time.
  • 🟡 Twice-weekly live conversations with friends. Managed this all but one week this month.

Track & Fitness

  • I’m fully recovered from my hamstring tear! I even managed to get back on the track for some acceleration work.
  • I feel really bouncy—I don’t have any numbers, but I’m almost hitting my head against the ten-foot gym ceiling on double-leg veritcal jumps!
  • August was a light month for me; I’ll be starting preseason training next month when I’m back in Atlanta.


  • I built a MacOS version of JOTA, with automatic syncing with the iOS version. I’m hoping to release it to the App Store next month, but in the meantime, you can build it from source.
