To be a very slow runner by yourself on your ordinary Saturday 8-mile route.
To be a very slow runner on your ordinary Saturday 8-mile route when that route happens to coincide with miles 13-14 and 19-24 of the St Jude Marathon.
Extra extremely embarrassing:
The marathoners are wearing shorts and t-shirts. You are wearing six layers of clothing. And you’re still cold.
