There are several reasons why you don't find yourself in two places at once, but that doesn't actually suggest that you can't be. It is highly improbable, though. So improbable, in fact, that it's almost certain that it will never happen in the life of the universe. Always beware of committing the serial trials fallacy, though.

The primary reason that you don't is that every particle that makes you constitutes an observer collapsing the wavefunctions of all the other particles that make you.
