The incredible Danni Allen took the ‘Biggest Loser’ crown, but don’t think she’s taking one minute to rest. The size 4 reality star revealed that her next challenge will be running a marathon!

Danni Allen, the winner of season 14 of The Biggest Loser, lost 121 pounds and won $250,000, but she knows that the biggest challenge comes now — keeping the weight off.

Danni Allen’s New Goal: Running A Marathon

That’s why she’s decided to run the Chicago marathon!

The Mundelein, Ill. native has set her goal — with The Biggest Loser title under her belt she wants to add 26.2 miles to her trophy case too. “That’s going to be my first fitness goal,” she told reporters after the show’s finale on Monday, Mar. 18. Danni played water polo for Clemson University and we saw how determined she was during the competition, so we have a feeling that she can accomplish anything she sets her mind to! “She just has a sense of fire and energy,” says Kim Moody, her fitness instructor.

Danni Allen: A Size 4 & Staying That Way

Danni also revealed an amazing fact after the finale. When the competition began, she was at her largest — a size 20. Now she’ll have a very hard time fitting into her old clothes — she’s now a size 4!

What an amazing achievement. But Danni is being realistic and knows that it’ll be much easier to put pounds back on than it was to shed them. “One of my biggest fears was putting the weight back on,” Danni said.

So she’s purged her apartment cupboards of ice cream and potato chips. And now that she’s set a new fitness goal for herself, she should be able to maintain her new fit, amazing body!
