Think You’re an Endurance Athlete? 97 yr. old Runner Has You Beat

George Etzweiler didn’t start running until he was 49.  By his standards he was a little overweight and needed to shed a few pounds.  What he probably didn’t know is that 48 years later he’d still be running.  In his words, “I don’t keep track of my heart rate, I have a pacemaker that does that.”  Every year he runs up the Northeast’s tallest 6,289ft Mt. Washington and every year it get’s a little steeper. -ML
