Expertise that only comes from
years of experience.
Cory's coaching expertise is derived from a combination of personal experience and exposure to world-class coaches and professional athletes. Throughout Cory's running career, he has been fortunate to be surrounded by some of the world's best athletes and coaches. These people have shaped the way he coaches and inspired him to become a coach himself. Most notable are his high school coach, Jim McCoach, and college coaches, Jim Tuppeny and Marcus O'Sullivan.
Cory, a USA Track & Field Level 2 Endurance Certified Running Coach and full time running coach, started guiding athletes in 2009 when he co-founded Villanova Elite, a running club providing support to post-collegiate distance runners. As club founder, Cory helped guide several of their athletes to multiple personal bests. Today, along with being the Head Coach of Run Your Personal Best, he's also Head Men's & Women's Cross Country Coach at Penn State Brandywine.
Cory first entered the national running scene in high school, where he qualified for the National Cross Country Championships and earned a spot as one of the top 25 cross country runners in the US. As a member of the track & field team, he held three Maryland State records and finished his high school career with the 6th fastest 2 mile in the US.
Following high school Cory attended Villanova University where he was consistently a top performer earning 8 NCAA D1 Regional Qualifiers including 2 at the NCAA D1 National Championships. He earned multiple honors in both cross-country and track & field including Big East and Mid Atlantic.
Today, Cory runs for one of the nation's premier running clubs, Bryn Mawr Running Company and holds personal records of 3:45 - 1500 meters, 4:03 mile, 8:05 3000 meters, 14:13 5k and the most recent of 1:10:28 1/2 marathon in Novemer 2014.
