The woman saw other runners stepping over something. It was a puppy that seemed lost. She picked it up and carried it all the way to the finish line. She has since adopted the dog.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep with a story of a hardcore dog rescue. A woman was running in a marathon in Thailand when she saw runners step over something - a puppy, which seemed lost. She picked it up and carried it all the remaining 19 miles of the marathon. There's video of this. She seems a little tired, but she triumphantly holds up the puppy in one palm while running. She has since adopted the dog and named it in honor of the marathon where they met.
