Name: Penny Fogel (Los Angeles, CA, USA).
Job: Attorney at Law, Certified Worker’s Compensation Specialist, Mother, life-long Runner.
Age at PBP 2015: 52.
Personal: Wonderful daughter Emily and son Max. Was married for over 20 years.
Interests: Challenges. I have raced to the top of Mount Baldy, crawled through mud for the Gladiator’s Rock and Run, explored glaciers in Iceland, completed a ½ marathon and trotted with the turkeys this past Thanksgiving (5 K race). The only good thing about getting older is the time that used to guarantee a last place gets you first in your age group!

Why PBP?: I have always wanted to complete an extreme endurance event and, with the ElliptiGO, I can accomplish my goal!
Favorite Phrase: “Never moon a werewolf…”
