shoes: Icebug olx 2nd

Whoa, orienteering is hard! I had no idea where I was all the way to 1, finally continuing on to the trail and going the wrong way at first, coming back and attacking from the little square bunker by the creek. Then a good stretch (a little slower, out of respect for the terrain) to a clumsy mistake on 9. Another good stretch all the way to the end, but couldn't find the finish control at all. Ran by it twice, only saw it on the third pass because someone else was punching. The only consolation, and it's not much of one, is that about 30 other people lost even more time than I did. Oh, and it was a great day to be in the woods, turning sunny and warm after the early rain.
