When I signed up to write about the Firemen's 5K, I was all, "Too easy. Firemen are hot. Firemen all sweaty? Even hotter. I'll make jokes about kittens stuck in trees. Innuendo about firemen and their hoses." But when I went to their Web site, I saw that the race is in memory of two firefighters who lost their lives. Trying to save people. In a church. You can't joke about that. In fact, I don't see how you can run this race without crying the whole time. 8 a.m. this Saturday run the 9th Annual Firemen's 5K and 1M Fun Run (Fun? Really?), benefiting the Compassionate Friends and the WARM Place. The race begins at Arborlawn Methodist Church, 5001 Briarhaven Road in Fort Worth. Registration starts at 6:45 a.m. Entry fee is $20. Call 817-819-5530 or visit firemens5k.com.
