Kevin Hart – The Marathon Man


(AllHipHop News) Kevin Hart has announced he will run the New York City Marathon.

The “Wedding Ringer” actor and comedian joked he only had “little legs” but he was still up for the 26.2 mile race.

Kevin will race with more than 50,000 others runners from around the world, who will descend on the city in November to take part in the 47th annual marathon.

The 38-year-old comedian declared that “Sometimes you gotta aim so high it scares you”.

He took to Twitter to tell his 34 million followers the news: “Yes, I am running the #NYCmarathon,” he said. “That’s my #moonshot. What’s yours?”

He posted a video alongside the statement where you can see the comedian getting psyched up on a running track.

“I want to talk about moonshots. What is that? I’m talking moonshots,” he said looking into the camera.

The comedian recently told Good Morning America that he had taken up another from of exercise, yoga.

“I’m loving yoga right now, that’s my new thing – I’m switching it up,” he explained.

“I said, ‘I’m gonna do it because I’m not flexible’, and I was waking up aching, and I couldn’t touch my toes. We did, like, some hip-hop yoga and that was cool.and I like it.”
