Colorado National Monument (CNM) attracts adventure-seekers of all kinds, including cyclists, hikers and climbers. And early each November, the monument hosts nearly 600 athletes with one crazy goal: to run the U.S. Bank Rim Rock Run, a race that climbs thousands of feet over the monument before descending into downtown Fruita. The Rim Rock Run offers runners the choice of a full marathon, a marathon relay and a half-marathon.
Just keep pushing, just keep going. These are the mantras that drive Mary Beth Prodromides to excel in CrossFit, a heart-pounding exercise program that combines agility and strength training. Prodromides, 56, likes to push herself almost to the point of giving up. “You can’t get into better shape unless you’re at the point where you think you’re going to quit,” she said.
Ruth Ann Feild moved to Grand Junction from Ohio in 1982, and fell in love with the town. She enjoys the Western Slope so much that she shares its stories and history through her favorite art medium—quilting. “I’m kind of like a quilt historian and a map cartographer. I love maps—it’s probably because I get lost a lot,” Field said with a smile. She also loves inspiring others to learn the craft. “I want that next generation to carry on [quilting],” Feild said.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
