It must have taken some resolution for 34 athletes to show up on a cold Saturday morning, 13 January 2018, to run a five-kilometer race on the streets of Valdosta, Georgia. But it was, after all, the second annual Resolution 5K. Showing the most resolve was Tanner Bryan, a marathoner currently living in Sterling, Virginia. Bryan won the race in 19:14, finishing more than 600 meters ahead of the next runner. Jordan Lamothe of Valdosta was the first woman in the 5K, placing fourth overall in 23:32.
[On Sunday, 14 January 2018, I was privileged to make the presentation of Gulf Winds Track Club's 2017 Community Award. Here is what I said at GWTC's annual award meeting that evening.] From the 1960s through the 1980s, junior college track and field as well as cross-country was part of the running landscape in Florida. Not every two-year school fielded teams, but quite a few did. Some of those teams did quite well on a national level.
Since it was first run in 2015, the annual TMH For Life Challenge 5K hasn't grown into the largest road race in Tallahassee. It hasn't produced the fastest times in town, either. But by merit of being held on the first Saturday in January, the Challenge is always the city's first 5K of the year, a kind of season opener. So on Saturday morning, Jan. 6, opening Tallahassee’s year of 5K road racing, Bryce Cole went 18:01 to win the fourth annual TMH For Life Challenge 5K.
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".
