Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin received a mixed reaction at the Pegasus Parade in Louisville Thursday.

The governor, wearing a hot pink blazer, waved to parade attendees while running. It is unknown why Bevin started the jog, but he eventually slowed down to a walking pace in the brief video.

Bevin has seen his approval rating slide in recent months. An April Western Kentucky poll showed only 32 percent of people approve of his job performance while 56 disapproved. This comes after a tumultuous legislative session where Republican lawmakers overrode both his budget and tax vetoes.

The governor was mostly smiles during the event, even stopping to take one of his well-known group selfies with some of the attendees.
