Breathing plays an integral role in running, just like it does in many exercises.

The key to get it down for running is to take loonngggg, deep breathes. Inhale through your nose and exhale through your mouth. Inhaling through your nose gives you more control over your breathe and I think you will find that it will be easier to manage a comfortable pace when you get the breathing down.

When you start to breathe heavy through your mouth, it almost gives you a false-sense of fatigue. So if you train yourself to correct your breathing when this happens you will see a huge difference!

The other benefits of proper breathing: it prevents many cramps and improves running posture! You'll feel like a new runner
