So, I'm wondering, how do you breathe when your run? And, more specifically, how do you breathe to make your running more efficient?

If you can get your mind on something else, your body will just breathe naturally.
The specifics of breathing really vary from person to person. Most people breathe through their mouths, but some do not. Some people fall into various rhythms where X breaths match up with Y steps.
Most daily running should be done at an easy conversational pace anyway, where breathing isn't a big deal. If you're trying to improve aerobic fitness, you get limited benefit from going faster.
I've developed a pattern of breathing that works well for me on
most runs by taking "two breaths in and one longer breath out" ( hee - hee - whoooo)
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the number of moments that take our breath away...(unkown) • Go With The Flow • Thyroid Support Group
Labor breathing - how many kids do you have?
I actually do this when I am transitioning/anaerobic, but not all out, otherwise, generally nose breathe, but don't really think too much about it, as long as the air gets in there comfortably!
I usually just alternate inhaling with exhaling. I seem to be able to do this without thinking about it--often even sleeping while breathing.
Impressive! Maybe Jay Leno would be interested in this "ability"
