We continue our Pennsylvania People series with a new and intimate portrait of one of the people who makes Pennsylvania so interesting. WPSU’s Patty Satalia catches up with 91-year-old George Etzweiler, founder of the Old Men of the Mountains running team. This October 23rd they’ll be competing—for the 5th year in a row!—in the grueling Tussey mOUntaiNBACK 50-mile relay and ultramarathon!

George is truely amazing. He was at Camp Blue Diamond for Heritage Fair on September 24 directing traffic. I only wish that I have half of his energy at that age.
