Something caught the attention of Ludivine, a 2 1/2-year-old
bloodhound living in Alabama, on the morning of Jan. 16 and the dog was
off and running.
And running. And running.
She didn’t stop
until she’d finished the Elkmont Train Trek Half-Marathon, finishing
seventh among the pack of runners in 1:32:56. It’s a truly amazing feat
on a number of levels. For one thing, her owner, April Hamlin, had just
let her out for a quick bathroom break. For another, Ludivine is a bit
of a sloth.
“She’s laid-back and friendly, so I can’t believe she ran the whole half-marathon because she’s actually really lazy,”
Although her owner worried that her pup might have been a distraction
for the field of 165 runners, Ludivine seemed to make friends along the
way, stopping once to sniff out a dead rabbit.
“One time she
went over and met another dog next to the course,” he told Runner’s
World. “Later on, she went into a field with some mules and cows. Then
she’d come back and run around our legs.”
Elkmont is a small town and everyone just thought Ludivine belonged to a runner.
