When dog owner April Hamlin sent her pup outside to pee, she never expected her to come back with a medal. But she did, for the craziest reason.
After Hamlin let the pooch outside for relief, she snuck out the back garden and pranced over to the starting line of the Trackless Train Trek Half Marathon in Alabama. Incredibly, the dog ran the entire 13.1 mile course of the race. And not only did she finish, she also came in seventh place!

Hamlin only found out about her dog's athletic prowess when people started texting her photos of her wearing the medal. And understandably, she was in shock.

If you're curious, her finish time was 1:32.56. Not too shabby!
