Amanda “Jacked & Tan” Horrell

Amanda Horrell is a 36 year old mother of two, native Chattanoogan, avid crossfitter and runner. She started running and crossfitting 3 & 1⁄2 years ago with the initial goal of losing weight and making friends in a new town. Over the past 3 years, Amanda has consistently crossfit and run, constantly pushing herself and her goals. She recently deadlifted 315 pounds, officially entering her into the LHRL 50/300 club. This has been a goal of hers since completing her first 50 mile race almost 2 years ago. She now faces her second 50 mile race in three weeks. Earlier this year, she earned her L-1 Crossfit Trainer certificate and enjoys coaching at her gym, Olive Branch CrossFit. She loves heavy lifiting and has now upped her deadlift goal to 400 pounds. Her favorite movement is the power clean with a current PR of 155 pounds with a goal of 180 pounds. Her current 5K PR is 29:31:12 and she is super proud of that. She always says she is slow but steady when it comes to running. Dropping below a 30 minute 5K was a huge achievement for her.

Wilson “Beefcake” Horrell









Total fat guy, food junkie, 2+packs of cigarettes a day, lover and addict of all things unhealthy, lazyass who joined Olive Branch CrossFit, started hanging with the endurance crowd at LHRL, and watched my life and daily habits change. I like to run (but not all the time), and I like to lift (but not all the time). Truthfully, I like to do what I want, and I don’t want to spend every waking hour either in the gym or on a trail. I found an awesome balance of work and play through the coaching and concept of LHRL, as well as some really cool people, so I started trying some longer distances. I’m not a fast runner, and really don’t aspire to be, but I am relatively strong and I can play all day on the trails with the other kids. My life has changed thanks to this program. I appreciate the culture shift, and blending heavy weights with long distance.

I ran cross-country and track in high school, afterwards I stopped exercising completely. I was 22 years old overweight and smoked half a pack almost daily. Woke up one day sick of the way I was living and at 22 I lost 50lbs and quit smoking cold turkey. I wanted to prove to my coworker that I really use to like running and we did the warrior dash 5k in 2009. That same year I found an ad in a magazine about the north face endurance challenge in wisconsin and ran my first 50k that year. right away I became obsessed with running, after a few years of running ultras I wanted to challenge myself in a new way and found power lifting. The past 2 years of lifting and no running, I had the desire to do ultra races again and just finished the st pats 24hour race this october 2016 with 76.6miles. Now looking for that balance between lifting heavy and long runs 🙂

I have been fascinated with Ultra-marathons since I first read about them in Christopher McDougall’s “Born to Run”  I had always believed that running farther 26.2 miles was just unthinkable.  So I started running in late 2011 and set my sights on a 50k near me.  I DNF’d that race.  Then I tried that same race the next year and DNF’d it again.  A traditional, high milage training program was just leaving me tired and, frequently, injured.  To help with the injuries, I started doing CrossFit.  Shortly thereafter, I discovered Brian Mackenzie’s Crossfit Endurance and stumbled upon Lift Heavy/Run Long around the same time.  Once I started doing CrossFit, the injuries went away, and I started getting strong.
With a new training program in place, I was able to complete the Bandera 100k in Janurary 2015.  I came in dead last, but I still finished.  I am really proud of that buckle, as it represents my ability to do anything I set my mind to.
Next up, a 100 miler.
