“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.”
