I wanted to share this. Yesterday I ran and jogged as needed for 26 minutes straight for the first time ever. I was getting pain in my ribs on the right side. I don't think I can call this side stitch from what I have read about that but maybe, they say side stitch is below the bottom rib. Mine was up a bit higher. Anyway, this happened twice and when it did, I noticed I had allowed my breathing to become fast and shallow. The pain made me think of my breathing and when I corrected my breathing to deep and in rhythm with my steps, the pain left me.
