shoes: Icebug olx 2nd

Ran my own red course from the training yesterday. It went really well. Having been out there last week really boosted my confidence. It's not that I memorized things, it's more the belief that I'll see the reentrants and ditches and trails and rides when I come to them. In any event, I kept up good speed, maybe not maximum speed, and only had to slow down to spot the streamers.

I inspected 3 controls that people had reported problems with yesterday, and also picked up the water stop. All told, that was at least 10 minutes extra time, maybe more. I moved one streamer, replaced another one, and confirmed that the third one was in the right place. The one that was right, #38 (8 on Blue, 7 on Red and Green, in the broken ground) had been reported by several people as hung in the wrong place. Maybe it got moved yesterday, because it was certainly right when I got there today.

It was ridiculously hot even in the morning, and I must have sweated out 2 quarts of water. I want to run the course again when it's cooler. I should be able to get down around an hour.
