Possibly because you aren't used to running, your throat probably got dry - were you drinking water as you ran? It's important to keep yourself hydrated, even just sipping on water during your run can help. Also make sure you aren't pushing yourself too far - don't immediately go running for miles or too fast or without stopping. Ease yourself in to it and you'll find it gets easier

I would say it's because you are not used to running bear in mind I don't know your medical record, it will get better the more used to it you get, as DrawTheLine said don't push yourself too hard.
