This athletic pup is named Ludivine, and according to her owner, she's prone to escaping and taking long strolls around town.  This time she happened to wander into the start line of the Elkmont Half-Marathon in Alabama. 

Attendees, including Tim Horvath who ran most of the race with Ludivine, told Runner's World that she ran the whole race from start to finish.



Although she did make a few pit stops that included meeting another dog and sniffing countless yards and streams, she still managed to finish seventh in the race. 



Volunteers were so surprised that she ran the whole race they gave her an honorary medal for her seventh place spot.
