I have the same type of asthma as you. Exercise-induced, it's generally called.
The treatment is generally 1 (or 2) puffs of your reliever inhaler (the blue one) before exercise. The active ingredient in the inhaler is NOT adrenaline, it is a synthetic analogue which acts only on the lungs.
However, it doesn't sound to me that you have your asthma fully under control as yet. Get to the docs and get on a steroid/combi inhaler as a "daily driver" to keep the symptoms under control. You may have to try a number of different ones before you hit on the one that works for you. Then once you've got that, STICK TO IT religiously. Also work on your allergies too - they are a major contributing factor.
In terms of breathing, don't overthink it. Just breathe. Your body will let you know when it needs air.
Last point - people with asthma CAN run. I run. I cycle too. I do multisport events. I've even been known to swim. I play a multitude of sports. If I can do it, anyone can.
In God we trust, all others bring data.

If God invented marathons to keep people from doing anything more stupid, the triathlon must have taken Him completely by surprise.
Specificity, specificity, specificity.
The plural of "anecdote" is not "data".
