Mountain View's Dakota Jimenez slides into third for a triple as head coach Brian Smela, left, peers in Tuesday against Longmont/Erie at Brock Field. The Lions won a low-scoring game, 3-2, as Jimenez ripped a pair of extra-base hits. ( Jenny Sparks / Loveland Reporter-Herald )Only three outs stood in the way. It doesn't sound like much, and often times that number is trivial. It's part of the beauty of baseball. Nothing is given. Everything is earned.
Shannon Dee transitions from swimming to biking in the Loveland Lake to Lake Triathalon on Saturday at North Lake Park. ( Michelle Risinger / Loveland Reporter-Herald )All for one guy to deal with in the same day. Nothing about Robbie Wade's race seemed ideal and any one of his problems could have derailed the whole thing. Certainly winning the Loveland Lake to Lake Triathlon on Saturday wasn't an obtainable feat. Not with nearly 40 miles of total racing between a swim, bike ride and run.

This year will be the 17th edition of the event. ( Michael Brian / Loveland Reporter-Herald )Nearly two decades ago, you had to search. Triathlons hadn't caught on then, not even in a state as active as Colorado. In fact, an entire summer season only offered up a handful of opportunities. Only the hardcore fitness gurus sought them out.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
