Often people claim cramps that occur while running are because of dehydration or the opposite, too much water. In reality for most beginners it is simply they are not breathing "right." Every breath should feel deep and as if your stomach is "rising and falling." Most of the time as a person gains more experience their breathing will gradually shift to a more natural way.

There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run.” — John Bingham, Author and Runner Like TARP on Facebook
