Kevin Hart was among other celebrities who participated in the NYC Marathon on Sunday. The 26.2 mile race winds its way through all five boroughs. This was Hart's first time running in the marathon.
I feel like my life is a big checklist. I’m just knocking them out — check, check, check, check, check, check, check. I was like, ‘What if I ran a marathon?’ 26.2 miles. Don’t underestimate that ‘.2.’ Cuz you can come up on that ’26’ and that ‘.2’ can whoop your ass.
The actor and comedian took a moment to thank everyone who pledged money to his “Help From The Hart" charity, a scholarship program that aims to help youth gain access to college education. Hart's program has raised more than $300,000.

Hart wasn't the only celebrity to share their experience running the marathon.
It’s become this annual thing that I do. Honestly, at the end of a marathon, it’s one of the few times that I just feel like my mind is sort of empty. Probably because of exhaustion... I’ve probably lost somewhere between 60 and 80 lbs.

It’s been inspiring knowing you can achieve whatever you set your mind to.
