Runner Rescues Puppy During Marathon Then Carries Her 19 Miles To The Finish Line

 She took home something better than a medal!

She received something more valuable than a medal!

Marathon runners train for months, if not years, to prepare their bodies and brains for the 26.2 mile journey.

Bangkok's Khemjira Klongsanun is no exception. But when she came across a little dog on the side of the road approximately 7 miles into a local event, she abandoned everything to save her. Klongsanun went on to complete the marathon, sprinting 19 miles while holding the puppy in her arms!

The puppy happily bobbed along with her savior, delighted to be a part of the celebration!

Klongsanun took her home to be with her family!

She named the dog Nong Chom after the Thai district where she was discovered.

After a trip to the vet, Klongsanun returned Nong Chom to the location where she was discovered to look for her mother and siblings.

“Unfortunately, no further dogs were discovered.” It appears that the tiny lady was indeed on her own that day.

Klongsanun did not win the marathon, but her courageous acts ensure that she will always be first in Nong Chom's heart!

You are a hero on Earth, and you earned your wings, but it was an incredible thing you did. God bless you always, and thank you for saving those precious ones.
