With the end of Penn State’s spring semester, and warmer temperatures making running more challenging, there are fewer 5K races on the local calendar. For runners looking for a different kind of challenge, though, triathlon season is just getting started. The Millheim Pool Sprint Triathlon on June 24 offers a short, beginner-friendly course consisting of a 300-yard swim, 15-mile bike ride and a 3.2-mile run.
Jaimie Wright of State College won the women’s race at the Garden Spot Village Marathon on April 8 in New Holland. Wright battled strong winds and a hilly course to finish in 3 hours, 21 minutes, 13 seconds — more than 10 minutes faster than the next woman and ahead of all but the top-5 men. Wright is the organizer for the 2017 Centre Volunteers in Medicine Marathoners for Medicine team and used her marathon to raise more than $700 in donations for the medical clinic.
On the evening of March 22, a group of people started to gather at Anthym Running in downtown State College. Instead of perusing the shop’s displays, though, they mingled and chatted. The group included a newlywed couple who had recently moved to State College, a graduate student from England and a young man training for the Pittsburgh Marathon. It was a normal Wednesday evening for the store, which hosts a weekly group run.
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".
