Trying to get fast so I can beat my personal record in a 5K. And also, thinking about being able to eat what I like without getting too fat.
When you are running, your goal motivates you, because you want to accomplish your goal.
Whenever I would run, back before both my knees were completely shot, the experience itself was motivation enough. I had a highly stressful day job, but running always seemed to clear my head and allow me to think of fresh ideas that I otherwise could not.
Some good music, something uplifting to pump you up. Sometimes podcasts are a better choice as you can get really invested in what they are talking about. Off course, don't get too interested in compiling a playlist and actually get out there!
My biggest motivation when running is the music I'm listening to. I like really fast, upbeat music so that it motivates me to go faster. Oh and classic rock like queen, the doors, ac/dc help me get motivated

The knowledge that I am getting fitter and better at running motivates me, also, music helps to keep me motivated, especially listening to songs like "Eye of the Tiger" by Survivor !
