Training for the Boston Marathon is officially underway! I hit 45 miles last week, ran in a new pair of shoes — Nike Zoom ElitesÂ —Â fit in a couple CrossFit classes AND I took a nap (hey, recovery is important! ).Â You know those weeks where running just feels GOOD? Last week was one of those and I’m so happy after struggling for a couple months with burnout, injuries and just overall frustration with how crappy running has felt. Hopefully this “feel-good-running” trend continues!
Master your indoor miles with these five tips to beat treadmill boredom. I ran 13 miles on the treadmill last weekend and have done runs as long as 20 miles indoor when the weather is completely unreasonable. (I once watched over 12″ of snow fall while doing a 20 mile treadmill run in Utah!) Whether I’m doing a long run or a 5 miler on the treadmill, I always get asked by friends, family and blog readers how I don’t get bored on the treadmill.
A weekend recap including a 13 mile run and a 5 mile run, two sessions with Winston-Salem photographers, and trying to prep for the week ahead! Happy Sunday! This weekend has been NONSTOP. Good stuff, but I’ve barely sat down all weekend and I feel so behind on emails, blog work and Beautycounter work. (I usually catch up a lot on Saturday and Sunday and try to get head for the upcoming week.) Thankfully tomorrow morning is a no-running day so I’ll be able to use my morning to work before work.
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".
