On the women’s side, joining Keitany are two other women who have broken the 2:20 barrier. Edna Kiplagat of Kenya, who won the 2017 Boston Marathon and recently placed second at the world championships marathon, has a 2:19:50 best that dates to the 2012 London Marathon. And Mare Dibaba of Ethiopia ran 2:19:52 at the 2012 Dubai Marathon. Dibaba won bronze at the 2016 Olympic marathon and finished eighth in August at the world championships marathon.
“I don’t even think he finished,” said Will Leer, a competitor and close friend of Torrence’s, in a phone interview on Wednesday with Runner’s World. “During the swim, he was so cold. He was too skinny to warm himself up—it was just ridiculous. Then he had to do like 1,000 burpees as a penalty for all the obstacles he couldn’t complete.
The 2017 New York City Marathon on November 5 will showcase two of America’s most accomplished distance runners: Shalane Flanagan and Meb Keflezighi. Both debuted at the 26.2-mile distance in New York—Flanagan in 2010, when she place second, and Keflezighi in 2002, when he placed ninth (he went on to win it in 2009). Both are four-time Olympians who have won silver medals at the Games—Flanagan in 2008 in the 10,000 meters and Keflezighi in 2004 in the marathon.
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".
