mom and me reindeer run
Reindeer Fun Run 2007: A Perfect Day with My Mother The Reindeer Fun Run is a very special race for me.

Reindeer spotted in Southern Pines

As many will remember, several months ago a reindeer was spotted in Pinehurst, North Carolina.  It appears that same reindeer has now made his way across town to Southern Pines.  While it could be part of a larger heard, the flashy red sneakers do most likely mean this is the same one photographed by a golfer earlier in the year.
