Marathons Completed: 3
Corey Burns (or as Ryan Leckey refers to him as “The Brother He Never Had!”) is lacing up to run the ING NYC Marathon for the second year in a row, where he hopes to post a better time than his 2011′s outing of 3:43:25.
This marathon will be one of many fitness challenges for Corey during 2012, as he recently completed the “Fittest of the Valley” competition at Kirby Park in June, and the “Civilian Military Combine” at Camelback Mountain in May.
When Corey is not corralling Ryan for many “Leckey Live” segments in the early morning hours aired on WNEP-TV, where he plays the role of Photographer/Editor, and chasing his two children (Corey & Téa) with his wife (Erin) at home, you can find him training at CrossFit Scranton in preparation for November’s race through NYC’s five boroughs.
Corey is not only excited to run as part of the “Ryan’s Run 3″ crew, but is enthusiastic to share the inspiring stories of recovery and rehabilitation that is at the core of this campaign. For him to witness in 2011 the power of the “Zero G” technology, which was the main focus of “Ryan’s Run 2,” only showed Corey that great things are possible.
Join Corey in continuing to make the impossible, possible with this year’s “Ryan’s Run 3.” Please make a pledge in his honor, or for any of the other 19 runners!
