Episode 67 with Martinus Evans: 300 Pounds and Running for the Love of Running, Not Weight Loss

In today’s episode, we speak with Martinus Evans about…

Martinus Evans has run over 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 Times, Men’s Health, Well+Good, The Wall Street Journal, New York Post, LADbible, HuffPost, Magnolia, U.S. News & World Report and the cover of Runner’s World. Martinus is the Founder and CEO of the Slow AF Run Club, a community of over 10,000 members worldwide. 

To top this all off, he’s got degrees like a thermometer. He holds a BS in Exercise Science from Central Michigan University and a MS in Health Promotion Sciences, Graduate Certificate in Health Promotion and Health Education, and a MA in Digital Media and Design from the University of Connecticut.

When he’s not running races around the world, he enjoys speaking passionately about issues related to size-inclusivity, mindset, DEI and mental health. He also enjoys playing fetch with his rescue dog Mabel.
