About the Book:

Slow AF Run Club: the ultimate guide for anyone who wants to run is for those who may not fit the image of a “traditional” runner. It’s a how-to guide aimed at helping those at the “back of the pack” feel empowered to lace up their running shoes and get moving in their body as-is.

Slow AF contains specialized advice for slow runners from someone who started his running journey by falling off a treadmill (literally). Martinus Evans has been through it all–and has the cautionary tales to prove it.

It’s a book designed to make getting started less intimidating, covering everything from the gear you need as a beginner and simple nutrition to training schedules, recovery tips, finding a group, and running races (including why it’s okay to come in dead f*cking last).

Part blueprint, part workbook, and part hard-truth and humorous memoir, Slow AF is here to help you on every step of your journey, from jogging your first block to your first finish line and beyond.
