Sam | 1663 comments HI, I just joined and I had a question. If I join this challenge today (August 19), would I be able to backtrack to the beginning of the challenge (July 1, or even August 1) or would I have to start off today?

Welcome to the challenge Sam.

With challenges that have fixed start/end date, you can always backtrack to start date if you want to. :)

Also even if it says some specific dates (in this case Jul-Sep), it doesn't really mean you can't do them in different part of the year, just keep same length. ;)
