<p><span style="font-family:Arial;font-size:small;">Well this morning;s run was interesting.  I woke up, lost the battle with the snooze alarm, AGAIN,  and finally got out the door.  About half way through my run,  I saw a couple  of deer walk out of the woods onto the sidewalk in front of me, I guess they saw me and both started running into the street, right in front of an oncoming truck.<br><br>
 Yep,  one deer got smashed by the truck and I saw it fly through the air and I saw the other deer go down also.  I assumed it got hit also but maybe the second deer hit the truck?  Well anyway,  I was still running and I saw the truck basically just slow down some and then I guess he figured nothing serious happened to his truck so he kept on driving.  I could see the second deer struggling to get up  and I assumed it was a goner.  I saw 2 ladies running in the opposite direction and I warned them about the hit deer so they wouldn't get hurt.  </span><br><br><span style="font-family:sans-serif;font-size:small;">I got to the end of the road, doubled back and by the time I got to where the deer got hit, I finally saw the first deer on the other side of the road from where it got hit, dead obviously, and I couldn't find the second, so I am guessing the second one either survived or limped back into the woods where it probably died.  Very bizarre sight to see the deer, then see the truck lights and I just knew at last one of the deer was going to get hit.  I was really surprised that the truck didn't stop to check for damage.  I looked back to see if the truck stopped but it never did.  It would have been interesting to see how much damage actually happened to the truck.</span><br><br>
I did get 10 okay miles in.</p>
