"The Biggest Loser" winner runs 30 miles for his 30th birthday

Patrick House, season 10 winner of "The Biggest Loser," celebrated two milestones on Saturday.

His 30th birthday and running 30 miles to celebrate.

It was an early 6 A.M. start but a memorable one for the reality show winner.

House had a goal, run 30 miles in his hometown at the Vicksburg National Military Park.

He has lost more than 200 pounds since winning the show in 2010.

House called the hilly, 30 mile run the biggest challenge of his life.

"I've been preparing myself basically for the last two years when I think about it. My whole time starting on the ranch getting ready, losing the weight, staying shape, staying active, and building up to the marathon that my father and I run in. In April we finished the Boston Marathon again. And so, since then I've been just staying in training, running here in the park."

Friday was his actual birthday but House wanted to wait until family and friends could run with him.
