I love to run, but i run out of breath easily &my doctor says it's just my lung capacity-how can I increase it

No. Holding your breath will not help you at all. Breathe in with your nose, and out through your mouth. I breathe this way and it should help you significantly. Just control your breathing. When you lose control and breathe in and out from your mouth is when you mess up. Practice before your meet.

You can hold your breath until you pass out, but that is not going to make you a better runner. You need to breathe. You must breathe to run. Take deep, full breaths, not short gasps of air.
