  1. Martinus Evans: Founder of Slow AF Run Club Carl Landau 39:24

The Martinus Evans story is a very surprising one. As an adult he had many jobs, including a career  as a suit salesman at The Men’s Warehouse. Being on his feet 10 hours a day caused him hip pain. He saw a doctor that said, “Your hip hurts because you’re too fat. You should walk to lose weight.” Martinus was shocked and angered by his doctor’s words. And then he turned that into the goal to  run a marathon. He’s never looked back.

Martinus launched a blog, 300 Pounds and Running, is an 8-time marathon runner, formed the Slow AF Run Club that now has 30,000+ members, graced the cover of Runner’s World and is now a bestselling author of th book The Slow AF Run Club: The Ultimate Guide for Anyone Who Wants to Run. 

In his common sense, wickedly funny way Martinus inspires all of us to get off the couch and work toward for our dreams!
