Can a run negatively affect your vocal chords and/or your throat in general?

I went on a run this morning, and when I came back it was seemingly harder to breathe than usual, and while I can breathe normally now, I find I'm still wheezing about 2 1/2-3 hours after the fact and I can't sing or talk without losing breath quickly. I have tried: I've drunk a whole 24 oz bottle of water, I've lifted my arm's up to open the lung passages and breathed deeply, I've rested in a well-ventilated room with a fan over me. I think it was caused by: While running, I pushed myself a bit hard and during one bit I found my body getting extremely tired, almost like it was giving out and I was hardly breathing for a moment.
