This year's St. Patrick's Road Race will be Aleeta Sasarak's first. But she has dealt with a lot of "firsts" over the past few years, so a 10K run is really not a big deal. In 2015, Sasarak, of Easthampton, was first diagnosed with a blood cancer called chronic myeloid leukemia. This led her to a program named First Descents, which provides strives to improve the survival of young adults affect by cancer through outdoor adventures, skills development, and local adventure communities.
A hip-hop artist named Niz Ramos doesn't necessarily sound like an act you'd see in an Irish bar for a St. Patrick's Day event. But for the past five years, Ramos has been as big a part of the Holyoke St. Patrick's Road Race festivities at The Clover Pub as pulling a pint of Guinness. Ramos, a Holyoke native who has been performing hip hop all over New England for years, kicks off the Celtic festivities at The Clover Pub, opening up for the live bands that follow.
It's the Lenten season, so I might as well make this confession here today, as St. Patrick is sure to be in a forgiving mood this week:I have been guilty of shunning Irish-American iterations of anything that originally started in Ireland itself. To me, they were -- and in many cases still are -- two different beasts. While I am known for my love of (almost) all things Irish, my attitude toward the Irish-American experience was largely tainted with a dollop of disdain.

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".
