Hard to locate error messages

When you submit a new route, the UI's feedback on errors is really poor. For instance, if I hit Submit but I haven't put in a star rating, there is no obvious feedback that tells me that that was the problem. I click on Submit and seemingly nothing happens. It seems like maybe it's just slow, so I wait. I scroll up and down looking for what's wrong, but I don't notice anything. It's really not obvious until I painstakingly scroll through the multi-screen form that there was one item I didn't supply. Also, there is no clear indication that particular items are required or not required.

Hi Ben,

Thanks for the feedback! I will pass this and your other feedback along to our design team. We are currently in process of re-working the form for when you add a new trail or run and making the required fields more obvious as well as improving the error UI is definitely on the list!
