When Dion Leonard joined a grueling seven-day, 155 mile race, he never expected to gain a best friend in during the run. A little stray dog joined him for the adventure and the duo quickly became pals.

Gobi, joined the race running 77 miles, the only reason why he didn't run the whole thing was because of the warm temperatures reaching over 100 degrees. After passing the finish line, the two new friends had to part, but now Dion is doing everything possible to bring him home and give Gobi a forever home.
