During my last long run, I made the mistake of sliding a GU packet across inner cheek as I squeezed it into my mouth, ended up slicing my skin. Please be mindful while eating GU out of the packet - unless you want to wear a purple suit to complete the Joker look.

Well that sucks. Did the blood add to the flavor of the GU or can we consider that 'blood doping'?

Razz Hmm, the only scars I have from Gu packets result from sticking in my running bra during a race. Probably TMI, right?

I've had some leg chaffing as well from them being pinned on my shorts? The cheek is a new one though. Ouch. Reminds me of the scene from Jackass when they give themselve paper cuts on their tongues.

I've seen people tape GU around their waist like a utility belt. But I'd never put it in a bra or my banana hammock in my shorts.

Yeah that happen to me in Boston 09 when you showed me how to pin them to my shorts. That's why now I tuck my singlet in so those dam things don't cut me like that anymore. If I didn't know any better I would think you were trying to sabotage me. affraid

Too funny, Michele Twisted Evil I've caught the inside of my cheek before but only got a little cut...nothing to write home about. My biggest problem is letting the metal packaging come in contact with a filling...OUCH! I HATE that when it happens!
