The only thing I ever worry about is waking up one day and discovering i've lost the ability to actually run at all.
If your times bother you then leave the watch at home and run into the hills. You'll have no idea how far or fast you've been making it irrelevant. You can tell yourself it was 7m/m pace if it makes you feel better.
Worries about life are easily dealt with (or forgotten about) on a run.
Keys should never be an issue. Surely you have one item of running clobber that has a pocket or zip?
I live in the country so needing a poo isn't an issue. I have had to stop on a couple of occasions, retrieved emergency wet wipe from shorts, and done the business. I've been watched by approximately 40 sheep on one occasion and a herd of cows on another. The only time I ever really got a little worried was under a motorway bridge. I've no idea why as everyone was doing 70mph, how the hell were they going to see me, let alone recognise or identify me?
