BE GREAT….Its that simple….Keep pushing until you can't push anymore….Hard work pays off and it's that simple….Work hard so you can play harder….at the end of the day "Just Do It" #HustleHart
Kevin Hart finished his second marathon on Sunday in Chicago. He crossed the line in 4:13, and said in an Instagram video (found above) that the time wasn’t what he wanted, but that he’s proud of his effort.
He said, “You’re boy is on cloud nine. Why? Marathon number two complete, man.” Hart was running to raise money and awareness for educational philanthropy. Hart’s first marathon was the 2017 New York City Marathon where he finished in just over four hours.
Post-race, Hart summed up why the marathon is so difficult, and what it feels like to hit a wall while running. “Ran 21 miles straight, broke down at mile 22, felt like somebody was on the roof with a little thing called a cramp gun.” Hart describes being shot in the legs with this cramp gun.
Hart reportedly received a hug from winner Mo Farah post-race. Farah won in a 2:05:11, which is also a new European marathon record. Sunday was only Farah’s third marathon.
