shoes: IceBug Olx 4

QOC McKeldin Red. Navigation was pretty easy (it's the way this park is) but there is some challenge in weighing climb vs distance in route selection. I lost a couple minutes here and there, particularly towards the end, I guess tiredness may have had something to do with it.

Certainly the general complaint of doglegs (maybe more appropriately termed in-and-out controls) is valid. I also thought there was some gratuitous climb. Other than those issues, which could have been addressed with a few course adjustments, I just think it's hard to make the courses interesting here. Oh, and I ran late, so I wasn't affected by any misplaced controls, thanks to the early runners who re-hung them.
