Having the right posture allows you to breathe more freely. It is important to breath properly to help circulate oxygen around your body to your cells. You cells needs oxygen to make energy. Starvation of oxygen can cause tiredness as a effect of the build up of lactic acid in your cells which can be painful and cause you to stop running.
