Running like you're on your way to a fire

Saturday's Cold Creek 5k is an annual event in Castalia, but this year's run/walk will have some additional fun.

Several area firefighters, including FIT blogger Brian Hackenburg, are running the race in their full firefighter turnout gear. Hopefully the temperatures will drop a bit before race time. Also, former Perkins Township firefighter and cancer survivor Steve Westcott will be running in this year's race. Westcott now trains up-and-coming firefighters in fire safety and science.
