Do you also get those email messages from Runners World. Its been a while since I posted but when I saw this today I had to write it here. So, Budd Coates has a book called 'Running on air' . Im sorry I thought we were fish. The email describes the book as an educational tool on how to breathe while you run. Since I took my first step I used rythmic breathing and using my belly because this was natural to me. Hence the premise of this book. Why do people have to make running more complicated than what it is? Granted there is a bunch of running terminology out there but the very act of running should be natural. Maybe there should be two RW magazines. One for dummies and the other for people who like wasting money. Now......wheres that unsubscribe button before I get another morning motivation quote that does far from motivating.
Have a great day!

|Ryan Hall ain't got noth'n on me man! 26.2 here I come!|
In 11 days I have the Harrisburg Half Marathon to complete. I am using that as part of training for the Gettysburg Blue Gray Half in October. This summer, my training was lacking and I had no energy it seems. About 2 weeks ago I passed a pretty good sized kidney stone. Since then I have felt so much better. I look forward to running this Half Marathon next week and putting the medal around my son. What more when we can run it together. Take care and come back and visit.

I had a great time at the 3rd annual Gettysburg Blue-Grey Half Marathon in October. This will be one of those races where I hope to run every year from the inaugural. No race recap needed. A beautiful course and great memories 3rd year in a row.
I am presently in week 1 in a 16 week Half marathon Training block. I am training for the Chambersburg Half in March, 2014. This will not be my A race in 2014, but a conditioning phase. Earlier this year, I attempted a sub 2:00 in NC (speaking of which, aren't the Panthers playing tonight? Whoop Whoop). I did the Flying Pirate half marathon in 2:00:44. My A Race will be the Harrisburg Half Marathon in Sept with a sub 1:50 in mind. I have done this race 5 times so I know the course pretty good now. "No Hilly Surprises"
I have a lot to look forward to in 2014. A baby boy is on the way. While most guys are sitting around watching Football, I am putting up safari animal stickers on my son's walls in his room. I wouldn't trade it for the world though. My wife is doing phenomenally well. We are still making our new home our new home.. January 9th is the due date. Gabriel, Daddy loves you so much!
On another note, I have started dipping back into my creative side. With decorating the baby's room, I guess it's part of the territory. I have started to do some running art. Right now I am doing some rather detailed sketches. Later, I will probably get back into painting. So, look for this new and exciting feature of EOR in 2014. If anyone is interested in having a drawing done of one of their great moments in running, feel free to email me (kenleyojones@gmaildotcom, or leave a comment. Thanks for your continued readership.

I usually do my long runs on Monday since I am off. This morning I felt pretty strong. It was a hard 12 mile run 21 days out from race time. It was broken up into 4 segments of 3 miles each. The first mile was at 140bpm, then 2 @ 155, then a 1 mile recovery @ 140 followed by 2 miles @ 155. The last 2 miles in the 4th segment were run at 164bpm, which is threshold pace for me based on my Max HR, but I often wonder what my Max HR really is. Those last two miles, my legs were screaming. My wonderful wife had cashew chicken and rice prepared when I got home.
Everything is going fine with Baby Jones. He is very active and moving around and seems like he is running as what my wife describes. I foresee a running buddy in my future! Daddy can't wait for him to be here.15 more weeks to go. His name is Gabriel Dillon Jones! This year has been great, and God has blessed us so much.
