Firefighter Runs Half Marathon in Full Gear
SCRANTON, Pa. - There are some things most of us just wouldn't attempt. Running into a burning building might be one. Running 13 miles in full firefighter turnout gear might be another. But Ryan Robeson is not like most of us. Robeson is a former Scranton firefighter and current firefighter in York. He set out to run a half marathon through his hometown of Scranton, wearing everything a firefighter wears on the job: the coat and pants, the heavy boots, all while breathing from an oxygen tank. Fellow firefighters helped him switch out his tanks along the route.
