Pup wanders off property, decides to run half-marathon - and finishes 7th

Meet Ludivine.

Ludivine is now an award-winning runner after running an entire half marathon from start to finish.

And she finished 7th - overall - clearly winning the female dog division.

The bloodhound's owner had no idea about the race until Ludivine was getting recognized on Facebook.

The Elkmont Half Marathon posted a photo on Facebook of Ludivine with the caption, "This is Ludivine. She ran the entire half marathon and finished 7th overall with a time of 1.32.56."

Race officials detailed the whole scene on its website with some pretty adorable photos.

Among the achievements?

"Rumor has it, next year's race will be called the Hounddog Half, with a special award going to 7th place. Who knows, maybe Ludivine will return to challenge the front runner!"

A medal and a race in your honor? That's a pretty sweet 7th-place prize if you ask us.
