Last week’s workouts were easy and casual with one key workout that was a way for me to get up and over all the injuries of last year. I haven’t done hill repeats up this one gigantic hill in town in almost one year. It’s the hill that may or may not have contributed to my fibula stress fracture (that’s some people’s theory). I had not planned on hill repeats that day but there was something that pulled me to take a right up that hill when I ran past it.
I share more pics on Instagram and Instagram Stories. Are you following me? Please do! 1 ) Snowshoe running: When 3 miles is equal to 300,000. #truth3 ) I’m all about the gainz. Or at least gainz in getting me closer to being able to do my first unassisted pull up. 4 ) Fluffy fresh snow on trees. It was absolutely gorgeous in the woods during a snowstorm this week. 5 ) Hill repeats are back! It was my first time in almost 365 days that I attempted repeats on the big ass hill in town.
I’ve been meaning to update my favorite podcasts for runners for quite some time. When I finally sat down to do it, I looked up my first list to see what was on it. Ironically, it was almost exactly two years ago that I wrote that post. I guess January is the hot time for podcasts when everyone is looking for inspiration. Or something to pass the time while spending more time than you want on the treadmill because it’s so freakin’ cold. Never ever did I think I’d be a podcast listener.
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".
