Sports are great for the health and running is the best way to keep you in a good shape.

I just can’t imagine to train hard for a 13 miles marathon, only to have a dog beat you.

Well, that is exactly what happened with most of the Elkmont Trackless Train Half Marathon runners, in Alabama.

Ludivine, a 2 years old Bloodhound was out for a pee when she spotted all those guys running. And since there wasn’t any rule to say that only humans re allowed to participate, the quick thinker pup joined the marathon. Surprisingly, that wasn’t all as the doggy not just finished the run, but she even got a medal.

The adorable dog who finished seventh in the race, even had some pit stops!

She finished in just over an hour-and-a-half. Her owner April Hamlin said:

“All I did was open the door, and she ran the race on her own accord. My first reaction was that i was embarrassed and worried that she had possibly gotten in the way of the other runners. She’s laid back and friendly, so i can’t believe she ran the whole half marathon because she’s actually really lazy.”

Jim Clemens, who finished fourth in the half marathon said, “Every time I thought she had dropped off to go back home, I would hear her coming back up to me and she would race past me up to the two leaders.

She would run off to romp through the streams and into yards to sniff around for a while.”
