What I'm fighting most often is my own insecurity about running. I think after getting out of the Army I was so against running again that when I picked it up again, I picked up the old feelings. This is on my terms and whether I am running, run/walking, or sprinting this is for ME!

What I fight when I run is the mental barrier of I can't run any further. What I do is push myself beyond those words. For example, I say to myself, "okay, you want to stop, just run to that light pole or stop sign!" The pole or stop sign are located further a long so before I know it, I have ran farther and psyched out my mind for my physical to follow. Running burns like hell and it's suppose to so I just ignore my "great" burn and keep it moving! It takes me about 30mins to warm up anyway and after that, I am good!
I can simplify my life and lighten my burdens by deciding realistically what I want to do and what I have time to do. (~_^)
