Kevin Hart might not be a world-class athlete, but he did something few would expect in this weekend’s New York City Marathon event. The actor and comedian bested former NFL player Tiki Barber in the marathon and has his sights set on running in more.

Page Six reports:

The comedian and actor posted a video on Instagram that says “Marathon complete. Got my gold medal. It’s an amazing feeling. I can check this goal off my list.”

He finished his first NYC marathon in 4 hours, 5 minutes, 6 seconds. He’ll have some bragging rights on Barber, running 33 minutes faster than the 42-year-old retired football player turned broadcaster.

The 38-year-old Hart says he “cramped real bad after Mile 20” but immediately set another goal of running more marathons.

Hart got involved in the marathon as part of his “Help From the Hart” charity to raise funds for students to get into colleges and universities. Hart achieved his goal of raising $300,000 and is urging his supporters to keep giving to the campaign.
