shoes: IceBug Olx 4

QOC Greenbelt Red. It was only about 15 degrees when I started, and there was enough snow on the ground to obscure the small stuff underfoot. That's in the way of an excuse for being slow. I made a couple of bad route choices (like going through dense woods instead of around) but I had good attacks, and where I had trouble was around the controls. In two places the circle obscured a ditch, which confused me both times. The rest of the time it was my fault. I figured it would take me 1.5 hours, and I was 15 minutes over that.

Having been running during this bitter cold snap, I knew how to dress, and once I got warmed up it felt great to be in the woods. Standing around afterwards was hard, even with a change of clothes.
