Needed immediate hospital treatment.
No idea if this has been posted, could not find such a thread though.
A dog has sunk its teeth into the leg of the accident-prone marathon world record-holder, sending her calf muscle into painful spasm and requiring immediate hospital treatment.
It is not nice getting bitten by a dog, it happened to me.

Et moi! (a few years ago) I still got the scar. The owner reluctanly had to put it down because it nearly bit her finger off!
Last night one bull terrier dog chased me down the road and owner could not control it.
Earlier I nearly bumped into another terrier dog it was hiding in a corner. The owner could not care less what his dog was upto.
The third dog a jack russell which was wonder down the road dragging his leash and no owner in sight Must have been a full moon.
I can't stand dogs. They can't stand me.
Trouble never seems to be far away from Paula, reference the incident with the little girl on a bike! Wishing her all the best and quick recovery.
I've just finished reading her book only this week. She does seem to get her share of bad luck!
Seems like its a minor injury and she's ok.
I like dogs. I've always had one - but I no longer take any chances when on a run; if they get too close and look like they "want to play", they get kicked - accidentally of course and its followed by a Norman Wisdom comedy stumble by me and a gasped apology as I run on.... but same dog never comes back for more.
If you decide you are going to boot it in advance, they tend to sense it and back off!
I can't stand dogs I must say.
I wouldn't dare kick a dog. As well as being a bit of a yobbish thing to do, I'd be fearful it'd probably send the dog into uber attack mode!
When I see one of those stupid curious dogs bounding over, I simply slow the pace ready to stop, and kind of swivel to turn my goolies the other way so they can't have a piece of them!
Normally some monkey owner, usually a delicate little woman or some old duffer who couldn't dream of controlling such a mutt would then come into the picture with plenty of disclaimers and apologies.
Nah - just kick 'em.
Those yappy little bleeders can go some distance if you get your toe under them properly.
Just been for a 15 miler and took my mothers dog with me. Its amazing how little trouble you get from other dogs and dog owners when you have a canine with you.
They automatically pull their dogs close on the lead, or call them to heel. Obviously most dog owners care of their dog gets into a fight with another dog more than they do if it goes for you!
