@ your age U should-: -C a cardiologist for a stress test 2 make sure Ur heart is ok 4 Ur running. May taste blood or snot, & this can B from heat, high humidity. As long as U don't spit blood U should B ok. Pulmonary hypertension can cause bleeding in the lungs, just like thuorbred horses that race. If a horse bleeds, a vet must scope the lungs, & it actually bleeding, they R allowed 2 run on Lasix (furosemide). Pulm.pressure dcrs
