Suggestions....: If you notice you get more short of breath either when running or within a few minutes of stopping, it may help to use your bronchodilator inhaler within 30 minutes of initiating exercise and have it available for use when you stop running. If this doesn't seem to solve the problem, see your doctor as there are other meds that can be tried as well. Exercise is good for asthma so good luck!

Asthma: Make sure you are running on level ground and avoid extreme hills. If need be carry an inhaler and make sure your seasonal allergies are under control.
