Sound familiar? Good for you; you’ve got the bug. Now all you need to do is pick the perfect race. There are loads of factors that go into choosing the right course for your first time.

iStock.com/bhofack2In my family, Thanksgiving stuffing isn't exactly a science. It usually comes from a bag, gets cooked in whichever way the instructions say we're supposed to cook it, and then the flavor doesn't matter because it's doused with gravy. With that said, I feel sort of bad that we haven't given the stuffing the attention it deserves the past, oh, 20 years or so. The hard truth? Homemade stuffing is totally amazing. Heck, it can be fantabulous!
Forget about the tranquil sounds and meditation. There’s plenty of yoga studios that you can walk into today blaring bass-thumping hip hop beats with sweat-drenched athletes ready to tell you how their yoga workout kicked their ass. Yes, their yoga “workout.”Power yoga is a practice that’s been trending in yoga studios for years now and while it helps with flexibility you’re likely to spend a lot more time lifting and supporting your own body weight.
Sitting on subway, man yells at woman for holding her purse too close to him. Then says “and your donut-stained jacket is gross,” poking fun at her weight. Disgusted, I look at her, then at him and say “do you feel better now?” He looks at me confused, looks down, and apologizes.
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".
