I had this problem too. Really tough to pace myself. Music helps. When I first started running, I listened to a LOT of Bob Dylan music!
find some slower paced music that you like and see if that helps. If you have access to a treadmill, set the pace slow and 'don't touch that dial!'
you'll be pleasantly surprised at your progress
