Lane and Jennifer Vogel are not your ordinary couple. They’ve done Badwater, Marathon de Sables, multiple Ironmans (including Kona for Jennifer), and some. It wasn’t always this way with them, though. About 10 years they went from being relatively non-athletic to pursuing endurance sports when Jennifer got the bug to do a marathon. One thing led to another, and now ultra-racing and triathlons are all they know.
On this show we’ll talk to Jennifer, 32, and Lane, 36, of Florida, about their lives being the quintessential endurance sports couple, with some great insight and tips from a couple who makes it look easy to operate in a dual-athlete household.
