Haha! Well I hope I'm not a clutz, I try to tell myself I'm not anyways One thing I've noticed though while running is when I start thinking its been a while since I tripped or turned an ankle, it almost always happens soon after! Kinda like when you can't shake the thought of falling when climbing and then you fall
