This is the kind of story you need to hear on a Monday morning! Khemjira Klongsanun was recently in Thailand for a marathon. According to Runner’s World, she was around seven miles into the race last week when she saw the runners in front of her avoiding something in the road. What was it? It turned out to be a lost puppy. They were in the middle of nowhere and there weren’t any houses or other dogs around. So, she realized the puppy was either very lost or someone had abandoned it.
So, instead of just ignoring the puppy like everyone else, she picked it up, AND KEPT RUNNING THE MARATHON CARRYING THE PUPPY FOR THE LAST 19 MILES!
She says it made the marathon twice as hard, just adding on that little bit of additional weight. However, she said he was just too cute to just leave behind.
A little time has passed and she tried to track down the owner, but no one ever came forward to claim the puppy. So, guess who took him to a vet, got him the shots he needed and ended up adopting him? Yep. Khemjira. She named him Chombueng, the name of the area where the marathon was held.
