Breathing While Running

When I was little, I saw a running book at the library, and I remember wondering what was so complicated about running.  Why is there a book about something so easy to do?

As I grew up a little bit and ran some more, I learned that there is actually quite a lot going on when someone puts on foot in front of the other at high speeds.

I’ve always been intrigued about how to breath when running.  Is there a trick to keeping yourself from running out of breath?  

Today I found an interesting article with 7 Key Breathing Tips.  I particularly like #6.

Aim to take three footsteps for every inhale, and two footsteps for every exhale (3:2 ratio).
