A practical guide and a celebration of running for runners of all sizes and athletic ability, from the founder of the Slow AF Run Club.


Ten years ago, Martinus Evans got some stern advice from his doctor: "Lose weight or die." First defensive, but then defiant, Evans vowed that day to run a marathon, though his doctor thought he was crazy. Since then, Evans has run eight marathons and hundreds of other distances in his 300-something body, created his own devoted running community, and has been featured on the cover of Runner's World.
This book is a blueprint for those who may not fit the image of a "traditional" runner--that is, someone who is larger in size, less athletic, out of shape, or dealing with any kind of health issue that slows them down--to feel empowered to lace up their shoes and embrace the body they have right now.

As Evans says, the incredible benefits of running--better sleep, strong muscles and bones, better cardiovascular and mental health, and a sense of community--can and should be available to all of us. This practical handbook contains specialized advice to make getting started less intimidating, covering everything from gear and nutrition to training schedules, recovery tips, races (it's okay to come in DFL! [i.e., dead f*cking last]), and finding a running group. Full of essential advice and humor from a former newbie who fell off a treadmill on his first run (literally), The Slow AF Run Club is for anyone who wants to pick up running for the sheer joy of it.


Martinus Evans has run eight marathons since his doctor told him to "lose weight or die" in July 2012. Since then, he's also coached hundreds of runners and been featured in The New York TimesMen's HealthThe Wall Street Journal, Runner's World, New York Post, LADbible, HuffPostMagnolia, and U.S. News & World Report.
