I'd like to add that when I'm running across difficult passaages I often take a pencil and mark the places that I think is necessary to breath at and even how to breathe.
As for breathing through the nose, this is the way that I breathe mostly. For me it gives me a specific sound that I like, specially at passages that are very quick and requires less breathing time, breathing through the nose works extremely well for me. But for the extmely long passages that gives less time to breath I would breathe through my mouth and the way that I do that is I'd drop my bottom jaw instead of breathing through the corner of my mouth. If you could try this you could get an extremely good amout of air. However it could make you extremely dizzy but it works very well.
I like the post about jogging, I think that's a great idea.
