Thanksgiving is a unifying holiday in many ways. Aside from the joy of family and friends (and food! ), it’s also one of the most popular running days of the year. Hordes of Americans lace up their shoes and run in local turkey trots. These races have become something of a “pre-feast” endeavor, a way to balance out the evening’s consumption. That wasn’t the purpose of my first turkey trot, nor was family fun. When I registered for the 2009 GameDay 5K, it was for redemption.
These 21 awesome women made Team WR’s 2017 Game Changers list. Read on to discover how each is changing the world through running. When Gabe Grunewald crossed the finish line at the U.S. outdoor championships this past June, the other 1,500-meter runners circled around her and said a little prayer of well wishes. The 31-year-old middle-distance runner was undergoing chemotherapy at the time to treat adenoid cystic carcinoma, a rare cancer that was recurring for the fourth time.
For workouts, the Top 40 charts make for mixed blessings. On one hand, stiff competition generally ensures that—if a song makes the cut—it’s probably a memorable track. On the other hand, once a song ascends the chart, it often ends up in heavy rotation. All of this is to say that it’s tougher for your favorite jam to motivate you during a run if you’ve already heard it a couple of times that day on the radio.
@vitatrain4life@WomensRunning People should eat/drink/work out/love/breathe/poop the way they want that is best for their goals! If that means no holding back, then don’t. If it means limiting the treats, do that. Then everyone give themselves a break.
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".
