As a youngster, cutting out a poster from a magazine and in a hurry I put the scissors down they got stuck in our thick carpet upturned and I knelt on the point. I screamed and stood up instantly with them stuck in my knee!
I fell down the stairs backwards (from the top step), carrying scrabble and a glass of milk. Got to the bottom covered in milk and letters. Cracked ribs and a good ribbing soon after.
Tried to avoid an electrified fence whilst working on a ranch in Canada, thought I would shimmy under the main gate. Turned out the cable runs under it too!
Bouncing on my nan's sofa excited with my new Paul Daniel's magic set, I had the wand in my hand, slipped off the sofa and hit the floor, the white part of the wand penetrated the back of my throat. All I remember is the horrible taste of salt water for ages.
Did a half at a young age without any training and got a 1:56, spent the next 10 HMs flirting with the idea of being faster. Every event I did I would consider a failure if not under 1.56. I had so much negative/nervous energy/expectation at the start lines that I never did go under 2 again. I took 2 years off, played tennis, had fun getting fit and now I'm back with a fresh attitude and a properly structured programme. Regardless of whether my events are sub 2 I am enjoying training and for the first time I'm enjoying running..
I have a Belkin one - black and yellow thing. Has a tiny pouch for a key and holds the phone perfectly with no movement. Only downside is that the top where the phone slides in is exposed. During rain it's generally fine but in driving rain I wouldn't trust it! The strap appears small but stretches over my arm fine (quite big arms).
