Elizabeth “Corky” Corkum, Running Coach, Entrepreneur, and Competitive Athlete On Running For Fun, Career, and Life

When musical theatre major, Elizabeth ” Corky” Corkum, turned to running as a way to stay in shape in the competitive world of performing, she had no idea it would power her through a “quarter life crisis,” fuel her for career success in an entirely new industry and transform her life forever.  Now, 21 Marathons and 20 Half Marathons later, she has a 3:03:21 Marathon PR a 1:20:07 Half Marathon PR, and has coached thousands of athletes helping them achieve PR’s or simply run for fun.  Coach Corky is one of NYC’s top running coaches with a proven personal and professional track record of success. She is an entrepreneur with a private coaching business, Coach Corky Runs and is a running coach at Precision Run, the performance-based indoor running program and treadmill studio co-founded and created by David Siik and Equinox.

Bit by the running bug in 2010, Corky has run every distance from 5Ks to Ultra Marathons. She has coached thousands of athletes over the years through her own coaching business as well as top coaching jobs at Mile High Run Club, Nike, JackRabbit Sports, Run SMART (with Jack Daniels), City Coach MultiSport and the City Harvest NYC Marathon Charity Team,. She has also taught running seminars internationally, and has been a contributor to Runner’s World Magazine and Women’s Health.

Beyond her impressive PR’s and coaching, Corky has amassed some serious credentials and certifications: She is an RRCA Certified Running Coach, USATF Level 1 Certified Coach, ISSA Certified Personal Trainer and Specialist in Sports Nutrition, Red Cross CPR/AED Adult and Pediatric Certified.

On this episode, Corky and I sync up about where her journey with running began, her career and entrepreneurship, PRing, race recon and strategy, marathoning, preparing mentally and physically for races, and wrapping your mind around the comeback process.

Chris Clearfield On Why Systems Fail: From Oil Spills To Overcooked Holiday Meals + The Simple Solutions You Can Employ, Whether You Are Managing A Team Or Your Family’s Morning Routine

It all began when derivatives trader and commercially licensed airline pilot, Chris Clearfield, started seeing parallels between the financial crisis and aviation accidents all throughout his career.  In 2010, when the Deepwater Horizon Rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico, the idea for his book, Meltdown, was sparked. Since then Chris has been researching and comparing major catastrophes around the world. Meltdown offers a groundbreaking take on how complexity causes failure in all kinds of modern systems — from social media to air travel—this practical and entertaining book reveals how we can prevent meltdowns in business and life.

Chris Clearfield is the Co-Author (with Andras Tilcsik) of Meltdown: What Plane Crashes, Oil Spills, and Dumb Business Decisions Can Teach us About How To Succeed at Work and Home. This book is all about why our systems fail and what we can do about it.  It’s definitely a business book however, you can absolutely apply the principles to family, fitness, training and life.

Chris was in town a few months ago, visiting from Seattle. We went for a run then recorded the podcast with today’s special co-host, Lori Mazor.  You may know Lori from way back when, episode one. She is my partner in life and racing. Lori connected everyone for the podcast and is a huge fan of the book and has direct experience using some of the principles within.

In the book, Chris and Andras weave together cutting edge social science with riveting stories that take us from the front lines of the Volkswagon scandal to backstage at the Oscars, and from deep beneath the Gulf of Mexico to the top of Mount Everest. They explain how the increasing complexities of our systems create conditions ripe for failure and why our brains can’t keep up. Chris and Andras highlight the paradox of progress: while modern systems have given us new capabilities, they’ve become vulnerable to surprising meltdowns—and even corruption and misconduct.

Chris shares many of these stories and examples on today’s episode but we also explore his philosophy thru the lens of triathlon and family. Meltdown by Chris Clearfield and András Tilcsik is now available in paperback and of course, as an audiobook, which I downloaded and listened to on Audible
