Khemjira Klongsanun is a running enthusiast who particularly enjoys running and takes part in her fair share of competitions.
In one her recent marathons, she showed she wasn’t just a good athlete, but is also a really good person with a big heart!
Meet Khemjira Klongsanun from Bangkok, Thailand.
One day while she was running in a local marathon, something caught her eye, a puppy looking lost at the side of the road made her stop and forget about the competition.
Rather than continuing on her way, she put her race on hold, scooped up the helpless puppy into her arms and continued the race.
She saved a stray pup who was stranded at the side of the road during a 26-mile marathon.
She found the pup on the 7th mile and took it with her for the entire marathon, another 19 miles!
Instead of leaving her with audience members, she chose to run with the puppy all the way to the finish line.
They got lots of cheers from the fans
Aren’t they an adorable pair
She was safe and in good hands, and they forged a bond in that time.
After the race, they made a quick visit to where the pup was found to see if her siblings or mother were around, but they weren’t.
So Khemjira decided to adopt the sweet stray and gave her a forever home!
