Jelly Roll is kicking off his new year with a fitness journey.

Like many others, Jelly Roll has some New Year’s resolutions, but his seem very achievable. While most people set lofty goals and often forgotten about halfway through the year, Jelly Roll took to social media to highlight one of his goals, and his fans are backing him on it.

Last week, during Tom Segura and Bert Kreischer’s 2 Bears, 1 Cave episode, the two discussed their resolutions heading into the new year. Kreischer came up with the idea that he wants to be able to run a 5k by May.

“That’s our New Year’s resolution. 5K by May. Let’s get ready for it.”

Segura then says that it would be even better if they could enlist others to join them on their 5K journey. And it quickly turns into Kreischer and Segura calling many of their friends to see if they would participate in a 5k by May if the two hosted an event.

While some of their phone calls led to some less than promising responses from their friends, Jelly Roll later took to social media to shout them out, noting that he would partake in their 5K.

“This message is for Bert Kreischer and Tom Segura. I was on the ‘Full Send’ podcast this week, and Kyle from the Nelk Boys convinced me…that I could make it to the 5K by May if I dedicated myself to it. I believe him. I believe in myself. 

Bert, I love you, Bubba. Tom, I don’t know you, but I love you too, and I can’t wait to meet you. I’ll be there, baby. I’m in the woods, walking every morning.

5K by May, baby. 5K by May! I’M IN BERT, I’M IN BERT.” 

Like his speech from the CMA Awards, I am fired up after watching his message to the podcast hosts. Hell, I might even join in on the 5K by May goal.

Bunnie Xo quickly commented on the post hyping up her husband, along with hundreds of other users sending kind words.

“This comeback is personal.”

As Jelly Roll has been candid in the past about his struggles with weight, I am sure this comeback is personal for him. He is already putting in the work and dedicating his time to meet this goal with plenty of time to achieve it. I know I’m excited to follow along on his journey.

If you’re inspired to join Jelly Roll on the 5K by May journey, I highly recommend listening to his CMA speech while working out. It puts you in a headspace where you feel like you can run through walls.
