Jelly Roll Had A Goal To Finish A 5K In May…And He Accomplished It

At the start of the year, Jelly Roll proclaimed that he wanted to finish a 5K in May. He started by walking in the woods every morning and continued his training from there.

I’m in for the 5k in May,” Jelly Roll said in the caption of a video he shared on social media in January.

The “Save Me” singer has also been on a weight loss journey in recent months. He shared an update in April, saying he’s lost “70-something” pounds since he started.

Of course, Jelly Roll’s training for his 5K helped a lot when it came to weight loss. He said he was running 2-3 miles each day, 4-6 days each week. He’s also been “eating healthy” and spending time in the sauna.

Ultimately, Jelly Roll hopes to lose “another 100, 100-and-something” pounds. But he says he’s already “feeling good” after losing 70 pounds.

Jelly Roll’s wife, Bunnie Xo, recently shared that he had to leave social media because he was being bullied over his weight.

“…that makes me want to cry because he is the sweetest angel baby,” she said. “My husband doesn’t show it to you guys, but I’m going to have a very vulnerable moment here. It hurts him.”

Bunnie Xo Shares How They Celebrated After The Race

Needless to say, Bunnie was incredibly proud of Jelly Roll when he recently accomplished his goal of finishing a 5K! He completed the 2 Bears 5K with Bert Kreischer and Tom Segura at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California.

Bunnie shared a video on social media showing how they celebrated. Jelly Roll enjoyed a well-earned soak in a cold plunge to relax and unwind after the race.

Bunnie (who also ran the 5K!) joined her husband in the cold plunge tub. She gave him a sweet kiss while the crowd cheered.

What a beautiful day w/ beautiful ppl! So proud of my baby doing the 5k & losing 50 lbs to do it!” she captioned the video.

“The Running Interviewer” Kate Mackz interviewed Jelly Roll, Kreischer, and Segura after the race. She asked them how they felt, and Jelly Roll responded, “It felt really good.”

Though the singer joked that he doubts he’ll run another 5K soon. That is, unless Kreischer and Segura host one again!

Watch Jelly Roll’s post-race interview in the video below. Just to be warned, there is some swearing involved.
