    I think it would be completing my Duke of Edinburgh hiking things without killing anyone in my group - that took restraint!!

    Other than that, it would be figuring out how to get out of all sporting stuff in year 11

    Me + Sport = don't mix.

    Most memorable moment was being taken on a school trip and having to do an assault course race that included shuffling across a rope that spanned a river and falling into a river.

    Oh and I can't swim.

    The PE staff had a fit. Was awesome.

    Thankfully I managed to drag myself out of the riverbank (which was pretty much a deep trench, so it was like climbing a cliff), it was pretty difficult because I wasn't a particularly strong lad and was weighed down by heavy wet clothes.

    We lost the race because of it, but I was more talked about than the winners :P

    I did a 30 ish mile endurance ride and another time I spent over 6 hours in the saddle but didn’t cover any where near as many miles. That was a fun day started of with a 6 riders ended up with 2 riders by the end. One of the horse’s thought it would be fun to throw the rider off in the middle of nowhere where, cars couldn’t get to us.

    Playing basketball for my high school team (we never won a match though).

    A hat trick of medals at high school on sports day. Javalin - Gold, Shot put - Silver, Discus - Bronze.

    Pretty rubbish at sports but...

    In my 5th year we could choose some more "esoteric" sports, one term each. I fenced for a term, and once disarmed the teacher, who wasn't sure whether to be impressed, or not.

    Another term was 10 pin bowling. I just missed 300; stuffing the same teacher. This time he definitely wasn't impressed. I'm still faintly surprised I didn't have to walk home rather than ride in the minibus!

    When my mum beat everyone else's mum in the 100m mums race at Primary school - I think she's still faster than any of us!

    I did a 'go round and round the field as many times as you can in half and hour at school and beat all the fast kids - mind over matter and all that jazz. Short distances I suck - but I'd beat them at Star Craft so swings and roundabouts, eh?

    Headbanging to the entire AC/DC discography a few months back, for about 5 hours straight without dying.
