Chocolate lab finishes half-marathon

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- An unexpected guest runner at an Indiana half-marathon became an internet sensation.

A chocolate lab named Boogie met up with runners at the starting line in Evansville and just kept going.  When he crossed the finish line, no one knew who he belonged to.

Police sent an alert, and others took to social media to find his owner.  While searching for Boogie, his owner learned of his big accomplishment.

Boogie received a medal for finishing the race in two hours and 15 minutes, better than half of the race's participants.

There's no word if he'll run again next year.
