I’m excited to make another addition to the 50/400 Club. Please welcome, Wilson Horrell. This particular one is pretty special to me. I met Wilson a couple of years ago when he wandered into my gym, Olive Branch CrossFit. I’ve had the privilege of watching him go from “waddling” 5K’s to now running Ultra Marathons. Yes, I’ve gotten to coach him a little bit, but honestly, he does what he wants. The most impressive and inspiring thing about Wilson is his mindset. When he said he was going to get into this 50/400 club, I knew he would one day be here. I am SO proud of him and excited for him to see this goal come to fruition. On top of that, I got to go with him and run the race that got him into the club!! How cool is that!?
You can keep up with Wilson and his race reports at his Lift Heavy Run Long blog. Head over there and check out his race report on the Tunnel Hill 50 Miler that was the race that got him into our little gang.
Keep killing it, Beef. I’ll see you at our next Ultra! -LHRL
