Goose joins group of joggers for run around British lake

By Ben Hooper

July 19 (UPI) -- A fitness-minded goose has become a viral sensation after being filmed joining with a group of female joggers in Great Britain.

Exercise group JP Fitness posted a video to Facebook showing the goose, which members nicknamed Graham, running alongside a group of women as they jog around a lake in Helston, England.

The fleet-footed goose at one point overtakes one of the joggers, who is pushing a stroller.

"We were taking our runners for a workout around the lake and it swam over and climbed out and just started running with us. It nearly did a whole lap before getting back in the water again while we stretched," Jane Pett of JP Fitness told Cornwall Live. "As we came past again, it ran for another couple of laps with us before stopping to look at some dogs in the square."

"It looks like a youngish Canada Goose but had a pink ring on its leg. It was reasonably tame as we stroked it and certainly had no fear of us or dogs. We wondered if it was a bit disorientated so maybe has been knocked by a car," she said. "But it could certainly run. Every time we picked up speed it ran faster. Three laps is nearly a mile."

Photos posted to the group's Facebook show Graham also put in an appearance during a FIT strength session in the same park.
