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.

FueledByMOTM: How I Train For Triathlon + 3 Easy Strategies To Get Your Workouts Done

Getting to the gym, a spin class or outdoors for your long run can be a challenge with a busy work, family and social schedule. As a triathlete, I know this well.  FueledByMOTM is a new Marni on The Move weekly segment offering tips, advice, and answers to listener questions.  On this premiere episode, I share my strategies for fitting my workouts into my busy schedule, stay motivated during training, and set goals to achieve success.  Many of you have been asking me how I find the time to train for triathlon and how I stay inspired in my training and workout routine. This isn’t a new question, as my friends and family have asked me for decades!  While this segment is focused on triathlon, these tips and advice apply to any sports or fitness routine. Before I trained for triathlon, I was a runner, yoga practitioner, and fitness class junkie. The only way I ever got to the gym or studio is by approaching training the same way I approach running my business. Whether I am spearheading initiatives within my own company, The Salup Group, building a brand strategy, communications and content campaign for a client, or producing events and FIT+LOVE’s annual fitness festival, I set achievable goals, build a team, map out a plan of action, build it into my schedule and get it done.

FueledByMOTM is my new weekly podcast segment and Marni on the Move series offering easy-to-follow, actionable, tips, advice and answers to listener questions on topics we cover in depth on Marni on the Move from career, fitness, beauty, sports, wellness and more.  Either myself or one of my 60 plus podcast guests will be sharing, commenting and answering listener questions in each 20 minute or less epiode.
