For this challenge, you have too much code. The app.run will actually try to start a flask server in the challenge check. This will cause the code to run over it's time limit set by the checker to prevent run-away code. Remove the lines will pass the challenge:

from flask import Flask

app = Flask(__name__)
# use w/e current namespace is

# @app.route('/')
# def index():
#     return "Hello from Jim"

# app.run(debug=True, port=8000, host='0.0.0.0')
