Dog accidentally runs half marathon, places 7th

Posted: Updated:

ELKMONT, AL (WKOW) -- Not all animals need a human's help to get the job done. For example, the dog from Alabama who ran a half marathon without her owner even realizing she was gone. 

Earlier this month, Ludivine the bloodhound was outside on a bathroom break when she noticed a large crowd nearby. Turns out it was the starting line of the Trackless Train Trek half marathon. 

Ludivine trotted alongside the other runners for the entire 13.1 miles. She even finished in 7th place overall with a time of just under 1 hour and 33 minutes. 

Ludivine's owner says she didn't even know her dog was on the loose, until a friend sent her a picture of her dog at the finish line with a medal around its neck. 

At the end of the very long day, Ludivine came home with her prize and took a well-deserved nap.
