There’s no stopping Kevin Hart!
The 38-year-old comedian announced on Saturday his plans to run the New York City Marathon on Nov. 5 after being inspired by Kenyan long distance runner Eliud Kipchoge.
“Sometimes you gotta aim so high it scares you. Yes, I am running the #NYCmarathon. That’s my #moonshot. What’s yours?” Hart wrote on social media alongside a video of his announcement.
“Are we rolling? Good,” Hart says in the clip “I want to talk about moonshots. What is that? I’m talking moonshots. [Eliud] Kipchoge running the full marathon in 2 hours and 25 seconds, after witnessing that type of greatness it inspired me to get my own.” Adding, “I got little legs, but a big heart.”
According to Runners World, the “Get Hard” star has a passion for running and began training in 2015. In Aug. of 2016 he entered his first official race, Oregon’s Hood to Coast — a 199-mile, 12-person relay. From there, he’s been involved in more events within the sport.
Up next for Hart is the release of “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle”, in theatres Dec. 20. He and his wife, Eniko Parrish, are also expecting their first child together.
