Mercer runs half marathon

B.A.S.S. emcee Dave Mercer has made a pretty amazing transformation in the last 10 months: He's lost 90 pounds! A challenge issued by Subway for him to run a half marathon has resulted in a physical fitness endeavor and a steady diet of healthy subs.

Mercer signed up for the Subway Commit to Fit Challenge, and the restaurant chain has tracked his progress by video. The Subway cameras caught up with him at the Manitoba Half Marathon in June. After finishing in just more than 2 hours, Mercer said he's looking forward to doing a full marathon. But first, he said, "I really just want to go fishing!"

Mercer has shared his journey with his fans through Facebook and Twitter.

"I'm pretty proud of this," said Mercer on his Facebook page, "and the best part is I am not even close to finished with my goals! Don't let anyone tell you that you can't do it."
