Transcript for Firefighter finishes half-marathon wearing full gear and tanks
(Announcer) For free help, call 1-800-quit now. I'm trying to do that. Ryan trained for weeks. Trying to regulate, not take too deep a breath. It's great for fire fighting. Not for running. Reporter: Wearing that suit to show others what his father did, what he does and what all fellow firefighters do every day. When there's an actual structure fire and the guy's going to a job, it's much more taxing on the body than my half marathon will be. Reporter: His wife ahead of him, holding the American flag. The final steps. The crowd cheering him on. Ryan! Reporter: As he crosses the finish line, an entire community waiting. We salute Ryan and all of our firefighters. Dad would be proud. I'm David Muir. Good night. ������������������
