Good question..I had pneumonia about 3 years ago and I am an avid runner. I can remember the pain that you are talking about and I know it hurts. This helped me and maybe it will help you. Try doing breathing stretches. Stretch out your arms (sometimes in a door frame helps) and breathe deeply. There are several other breathing exercises that you can do (do a google search on breathing exercise) Also try running a mile to get breathing good and get loosened up before you go on your longer run. Good luck and run like a kid. God bless
