[LIST][/LIST]APPLETON, Wis. (AP) - You couldn’t blame Sarah Glidden for having that “deer in the headlights” look — especially after colliding with a deer — while on foot.
Glidden was running a forest course during a cross country race in Wisconsin when an antler-less deer bolted from the woods — and into her path.
After the two bumped into each other, Glidden was able to keep her balance — and both kept running.
The 15-year-old runner says she felt fur brush against her leg, but ended up with only a bruise.
She failed to qualify for the state meet — but says she isn’t sure how much the encounter with the deer affected her run.
