DETROIT, Mich. (KDKA) – A man in Michigan went for a jog he thought would be routine, but he ended up with some unexpected company.

On his “Sunday Morning Fun Run,” Jared Wein videotaped the deer that were running with them.

They followed him for about half a mile.

He said when they stopped, he stopped.

When he turned, they turned.

He called the deer “good running mates” because they pushed him and gave him more energy on his run.
