It’s no secret that funnyman Kevin Hart is seriously dedicated to fitness. You’ve watched him hustling in the gym, seen his already amazing body transformation unfold (though Hart’s not done yet), and—surprise—he revealed that he’s even working on a supplement line.

So yes, going from from comic to colossus requires constantly setting new fitness goals—but we’ve gotta admit, we didn’t see his latest venture coming.

To blow past comfort zones and break plateaus, Hart has decided to run the New York City Marathon on Nov. 5, 2017.

Hart says he was inspired by Eliud Kipchoge, who clocked the fastest (unofficial) marathon time in history—2:00:25—during Nike’s attempt to break the two-hour marathon barrier. Watch the hysterical but undoubtedly inspiring announcement below:
