Performing a sold out show at Lincoln Financial Field later that night, comedian, Kevin Hart, spent his Saturday morning running around the art museum. The 5K was one of many, Nike+ sponsored runs, held during Hart's "WHAT NOW TOUR." His fans did not disappoint, making Saturday the largest turnout of any of his previous tour runs, attracting over 2,500 runners. Showing unconditional love to his home town, Hart not only ran with everyone, but personally high fived and cheered on every runner, until the last person crossed the "Rocky Steps" finish line.
The positive energy was unavoidable, and although I decided to run the 5k the night before (for the first time in years) it was the best decision I ever made. Everyone was focused and ready to go. Cheering was continually heard from all angles, and at every point of the run. These tour stops are a great way to bring cities together and promote a healthy life style. Later that night, Hart performed flawlessly, receiving rave reviews. Once again proving that he deserved being the first performer ever, to sell
out Lincoln Financial Field.
