This guy is on a roll!
Last year, MasterChef judge Graham Elliot lost 150 pounds after undergoing a sleeve gastrectomy, and now he's setting out to prove he's in the best shape of his life!
This weekend the 37-year-old ran his very first 10K in Chicago on Memorial Day in an impressive 1 hour and 16 minutes! And apparently that's just the beginning!
Graham says he's preparing for the Chicago Marathon in October, where he'll be running on behalf of Smile Train, a charity organization that does free cleft repair surgeries!
He spoke out about the marathon, saying:
"I’m publicly saying I’m doing the marathon so excuses are not an option. This is a real commitment."
Wow! Talk about commitment!
Graham says the weight loss has definitely encouraged him to get into better shape, and we can definitely see the results considering he's preparing for a marathon!
Keep up the good work!
