Whats yours and how did it happen (Bonus points for photos)
A popular weekly mens magazine has a readers injuries page full of gross pictures.
Running or non running excepted.
Three cracked ribs
Scooter v Landrover (with bull bars)
Rode 20 miles home thinking I was winded until I removed t shirt and couldnt breath!!
I broke a nail once.....
The truth? Fractured skull whilst allowing my head to ricochet off a breeze block whilst holding a kick pad for a 6th dan.
Never stand too close to the wall.
Broke neck playing rugby at school. Not terribly painful, though.
Worse pain from broken wrist (playing frisbee) and dislocated jaw (surfing).
Also knocked myself silly once pushing son on a swing
I got my foot caught under a lawn mower as a child and had to have a skin graft, 2 patches of skin reomved from my thigh and placed on my lil' foot!
Sliced through my thumb with a carving knife as I wanted to make an arrow to shoot my brother with (serves me right!) Lots stitches.
Broke same arm twice. Once standing in goals stopping a ball and once diving into the swimming pool and my arm landing on my brother's head.
Got double bounced on a trampoline, fell off and got 3 stiches on head.
Was playing in shower as a kid, hit head on tap, another 3 stitches.
Pulled out a bottle and loads of other bottles fell, 6 stiches in leg from shard of glass.
Have glued my tongue to my lip by accident.

Licking stamps can be dangerous...
Seriously though, how???
Fractured my sternum once when i was 12-it was only painful when beathing!
Had an accident 2 days ago-slipped underneath a piece of machinery at work (i won't bore you with the description of the machinery) but it scraped both my shins rather effectively...quite messy and have 4 stitches in my left one...messy pics on application.
Wokingham half on sunday is 50/50 unless i want to burst stitches for a pb...new thread-would you burst stitches for a pb?

err... was super gluing a toy back together and forgot it was a tub of glue when I put it my mouth to hold, then glue dripped out onto lip, I instinctively tired to lick it off and it stuck.
It was foul and horrible and I had visions of my tongue being surgically removed!!!
Two broken legs playing football (seperate occasions)
Broken hand playing football
12 stiches on my knee tripped over a tent peg
Broken Hand (scaphoid) tripped over my shoe laces running (currently in plaster)
scaphoid fractures aren't pleasant-poor you.
Elastic laces are great i reckon!

I think that's something you'll only do once.
Nothing major apart from a few childhood scars, but I do have a scar on my elbow that is a complete mystery.
Ruptured tendons on top of left foot.Ruptured right achilles tendon.cracked ribs/something horrible to my sternum.various bone breakages...
Compound fracture of right humorous that went through my shoulder and stuck in my cheek - done on a run 6 AM in the morning in an isolated area - had to walk a couple of miles before I could get help... lost lots of blood and ended up having a shoulder joint replacement a couple of days later
How did it happen? - falling over my dog at the top of a v shaped valley and tumbling all the way down 60FT to the river below - it smarted a bit.
The dog was fine
Not running related...
About 35 years ago I got sprayed up the legs by a mixture of methanol, concentrated sulphuric acid and p-chlorophenol when a pump gasket failed on a piece of plant. It was touch and go, apparently, but I survived. Fortunately I had a visor on, otherwise I'd have been blinded.
An ambulance man and a nurse both suffered burns, and they had to incinerate my bedding until there was no more chlorophenol.
I don't remember too much about the early days, as they kept me sedated. My legs aren't very pretty.
Corinthian-that sounds extreme!
Crashie-ha ha is that a D2D reference? i did spot she posted something somewhere yesterday and no-one responded but there were lots of views of the post-she is quite a 'special' one isn;t she? I've only read a bit of her stuff and i feel the same as KK i'm afraid!
