The reports on patch.com, nj.com and app.com are true! As Dr. Sharin, owner of Barnside Veterinary Hospital, was running toward mile 10 of the Jersey Shore Half Marathon at Sandy Hook, NJ on Sunday October 7, she heard a great crashing from the scrubland to her right. Whipping around, she saw a young buck deer bolt across the pathway behind her and knock over another runner who was wearing headphones and hadn’t heard the commotion.
Fortunately, first-aid and an ambulance were nearby. The stunned and bruised runner still managed to finish the race, cheered on by Dr. Sharin and other runners who witnessed the incident. As the deer was not wearing a bib number, it did not receive an official time.
