Askal in Rizal

Whilst training in Rizal yesterday afternoon, Coach Jeannette Obiena noticed a stray dog lurking by the trash bin at the bleachers. The hardy askal (not Azkal, mind you), reminded me of the infamous dog chase during last year’s Commonwealth Games in Delhi.

It might take a few generations before we see the rise of an athletics facility to rival that of India’s Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, but hey, our very own Rizal Memorial Stadium is at par with the former – in terms of furry companions!

Stray Dog Invades Delhi Athletics Stadium!

A stray dog interrupted the athletics competition at the 2010 Delhi Commonwealth Games! Thank heavens it wasn’t rabid.

Whilst training alone at the high school oval seven years ago, I was chased by a pair of dogs. It wasn’t fun at all. I think I ran a new 200m best fleeing from the mutts!
