BC Band Japandroids are in!! Looks like U2 is out.
It seems there is no perfect pair of jeans. This saddens me because jeans are awesome. You can dress them up with a dress shirt and platform pumps, or dress them down with a band t-shirt and a pair of Converse. I haven’t found that one pair of magical jeans, but maybe it’s because it doesn’t exist? I’ve come pretty close, and if you continue reading I’ll tell you which stores carry the best (and worst) denims.
SONiC Nation, what’s up? I have a plan, tell me what you think. First some back-story… When race day comes in September for the Vancouver Triathlon– your pal Kenny will be without an iPod. So to train for the day without music I have put some bad songs onto my iPod. For the next few weeks I will listen to the odd bad song until eventually my playlist consists of nothing but brutal music. My idea is the music will be so bad that it will be better to run with out tunes…What do you think?
Will it work??
If you have any bad song suggestions please tweet them to me at @kennyjones77 or just email me a list email@example.com Also, if you would like to help with my fundraising for the Leukemia and Lymphoma society please check out my site

How many slices of pizza can you eat? Me, I’m good for at least 10! I would like to send a big shout out to my girl Katie Powell and the crew at Boston Pizza Sumas in Abbotsford! My wife and Katie got to talking about the Team in Training Vancouver Triathlon that is coming up. I promised myself that if I were to get training a wet suit and a hotel stay for free at the Vancouver Triathlon I would raise at least 2000 bucks to help the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada. That money will help with research and other programs to help fight these horrible diseases.
So what’s up with Boston Pizza? Well they said that Sunday May 20th from 5-9 they would give 10 percent of all sales to the Leukemia and lymphoma Society. How cool is that?

Oh wow, I learned a lot this week about the Vancouver Triathlon. Some good, some bad! Let me tell you about the bad first… No iPod … ahhhh I know, crazy. I love to run, I run every day. Well actually, I hate to run but I love the way it makes me feel, and along with running comes great music. I dig making a cool playlist and picking the perfect sound track for a long run. My iPod is loaded with songs that start on SONiC and then make my playlist.
Right now my main playlist features Deadmau5, Skrillix, and Down With Webster. It’s the perfect mix of tunes that pump you up, keep you on pace and motivate you to finish!
So I finally asked my team mentor that was provided by Team in Training “Can I bring an iPod for the bike and run portion of the tri?”…. He took a deep breath and said, “Sorry Kenny, but it’s not allowed on the course. It’s for safety purposes. The triathlon will have hundreds of participants and if you are into tunes you can’t follow course instructions.” Well I was busted! To be honest I’m not sure if I can run 10 inches with out my jams!

Got a chance to chat with the Biebz today and ask him about why he has so many short previews of his video. Come on man, show us the whole thing!
So, I have been talking about the Vancouver Triathlon with lots of people over the last week. There have been many different reactions … from, “What? Are you crazy?” to, “Hey man, best of luck.”
I still can’t completely figure out why I signed up for this. I think it is just one of those things I will never really have an answer for. I do know now that I could care less about the time I finish in. It is the challenge to cross the finish line that is motivating me. I keep imagining what it will be like to finish. I was always told; if you want something you need to put the end result in your mind and imagine what it will be like. So right now I picture a sunny day in Stanley park with my wife cheering me on as I run the last 500 meters. Kind of lame, I know, but I have my vision and I’m going for it.
