Disgraced Derick Dillard seems to have time on his hands after being fired from Counting On.
On Saturday, April 14, his devoted wife Jill Duggar gushed about Derick running in a marathon—after TV cameras had once showed him gagging while jogging!
Jill posted an Instagram photo of Derick jogging on a course with other competitors and wrote as a caption, "Yay for @derickdillard So proud of you babe! #running the #hogeyemarathon this morning! #yougotthis."
The marathon took place in Springdale, Arkansas. Before the race, Derick shared a selfie on Instagram of himself, Jill, and their two sons sitting at the table and wrote, "My wifey @jillmdillard makes the best pre-marathon race meals! Thanks babe!"
Before Derick was fired from the Duggar family reality show, Counting On, for blasting TLC's transgender star, Jazz Jennings, viewers saw him gagging on camera while jogging.
Derick has struggled with health issues since he was a teenager, show fans learned back then, and he had to stop by the side of the road when he began coughing and retching violently.
Derick told the cameras that he often experiences symptoms when he's doing any strenuous physical activity.
At the time, Derick wound up going to an allergy doctor, who told him on Counting On that his lungs were fine but he’s allergic to a long list of things, including plants and trees.
But Derick has continued running for fitness and he has plenty of time to pursue it now, as TLC, the network that made the Duggar family famous, cut its ties with Jill's controversial husband after his social media posts caused shock.
Dillard had bashed one of the network's other stars, transgender girl Jazz Jennnings, the 17-year-old star of I Am Jazz, tweeting, "I pity Jazz."
