At the classic event, one of the dog's (the shaggy black one)followed me around a lot of the course. It started running with me along a trail to #2, and then dissapeared after # 5 or 6. Out of nowhere he appeared again going to # 9 until the second last control. After the race someone told me that the dog wasn't able stay with me since he had to be helped over the many fences. Suprisingly he didn't break my focus, but a couple of times I would forget about him and I would hear something behind me thinking it was runner hot on my tail, but it would turn out to be the dog. It was kinda cool though having company during the race.
