Brittany Forgler (Jillian Bell) is a funny, likeable, 27-year-old hot mess of a New Yorker whose trashy nightclub adventures and early-morning walks of shame make her late for work every day. But when she stops by a Yelp-recommended doctor?s office in an attempt to score Adderall, Brittany finds herself slapped with a diagnosis: elevated heart rate, high blood pressure, and yes? obesity. Suddenly forced to get a grip, Brittany laces up her Converse sneakers and runs one sweaty block.

Trivia Brittany Runs a Marathon
Jillian Bell lost 40 pounds during the filming of the movie, just like her character does during the course of the film.
The cast and crew actually got to film at the New York City Marathon, making this the first time a non-documentary film crew has been allowed to shoot there.
While filming scenes at the marathon, many of the runners thought that Jillian Bell was really running and was being filmed as part of a documentary. Several times other runners stopped to help her during more difficult scenes; she didn't have the heart to explain she wasn't actually running the marathon.
