Martin Criminale didn’t start running until his 40s. Now 51, the Seattle-based athlete has completed multiple trail ultras, including a 100-miler (Cascade Crest, where he finished 12th overall), a 50-miler and several 50Ks.

In this video by Mike Folden, Criminale talks about his first ultra, the sport’s appeal and challenging oneself as a middle-aged athlete.
