Thumbs down Breathing?!

As of now, im in a gymkhana series for 8 weeks. We run barrels, poles, and a 'mystery' event. Last week, I went into the arena to run poles and distinctly remember taking a deep breath, as I always do. My aunt stood nearest the end pole (1st) and as soon as I was finished loosening Duke (We ran a 21.6!! Whoop whoop (; ), I noticed I was almost breathing as hard as he was... Now I know its a lot of work, but should I really be breathing THAT hard?! Anyways, my aunt comes up to me and says 'I don't think you breathe when you make a run...'

Do any of you guys have this problem? I never noticed. Ever.

If so, how do you fix it? I don't think just saying, 'Focus on taking breaths during a run.' is going to help. I already have so many things to focus on. Any advice at all would be helpful!

I hold my breath during my runs too mouth breathing seems to help a little bit, but depending on how dusty it is, you might not want to be inhaling that much arena dirt
