comment What is the difference between 〜となる and 〜になる?
Well what about this: 走ることになると優しく疲れるようになる。 It seems to have a different meaning, or at least a different nuance, when using に than with と. With に, it sounds to me like "Whenever I start running, I get tired easily." Whereas with と, it sounds more like running is an exception to the rule, and many other types of activities don't make me tired. Am I wrong here? (It's certainly possible)

comment What is the difference between 〜となる and 〜になる?
Is it true that になる can be used for everything? For example, I learned 「X こととなると」 as a set phrase which means roughly "When it comes to X", used to explain an exception to the rule. Like "When it comes math, I just can't do it (but I'm good at everything else!)"
