I was waiting for some more seasoned folk to reply here because I'm such a rookie.
I can, however, tell you one thing that works for me for wanting to stop or feeling like I'm running out of gas: I just give myself permission to stop if I want to. I allow myself to absolutely not run as far as I had initially planned, or to walk a segment of my run. I find that once I do that, I realize that I'm running because I *want* to. It's my choice. Once I get going, I find I don't want to cut my run short. And also once I get going I want to get a decent time, so will rarely walk a segment.
As for being passed by someone older - I'm usually the old broad!
He has told you what is good and what the Lord requires of you:
to do justice; to love kindness; and walk, humbly, with your God.
