Many people have changed their lives through running. I am one of them. Since I started running in 2013, I went from being an obese couch potato to a physically fit, normal-weight woman who plans her weekends around her road-race schedule. For me, even a crummy day running is better than just about anything else. I thought when I lost the weight that my turtle-like pace would improve, and it has. But at my best, I'm only at the front of the back of the pack, still slower than most runners.
One of the things I didn’t fully appreciate as a Yankees fan (and as a sports fan) before getting involved with athletics in my middle age is what it is like to be injured, something I have experienced several times now. Athletes can get hurt in a freak accident on the field (think Chien-Ming Wang getting hurt running on the basepaths), or off the field (think Goose Gossage busting his thumb after a shower scuffle with Cliff Johnson) and have their life turn into turmoil.
Ways your cell phone company is scamming youMobile phone bills are seemingly more consumer-friendly and easier to understand these days, what with unlimited data deals becoming more prevalent, as well as the demise of traditional two-year contracts. Unfortunately, it's like looking at an Impressionist painting. It appears great from a distance, but up close, it's all blurry. There are still a lot of ways your cell phone company could be ripping you off.
@BillBradley3 Chris Calimano is the best. Very helpful even with back of the packers like me. I talk about him here in my blog. He also gave me great advice for my marathon this fall: https://t.co/gVU81eazxD
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".
