Why is it SOOOO Hard to get Motivated?

I consider myself a runner.  By no means am I a fast runner, I am still trying to figure out the best strategy to get faster, but I enjoy it once I actually get out there!

I have just been having the WORST time getting motivated!  I have been running 4-6 days a week for a few weeks now.  I am trying really hard to get into shape.  I know that this extra weight I carry slows me down.  I know that is the first strategy to getting faster, lose the pounds that aren't needed or wanted.

I have been bringing my puppy running lately.  She is a good little personal trainer.  She takes it easy and then sprints as fast as she possibly can.  Since I don't want to look like I am slower than a puppy, I sprint as fast as I can to keep up.  I know it is good to sprint, I just have never really been a sprinter.  I had never really be a runner, until 2009.  I wanted to lose weight and running seemed like the most plausible way. 

I need to figure out ways to motivate myself to look forward to lacing up the shoes, instead of dreading the moment that I am going to lace up the shoes.  I used to look forward to every run.  I would even get upset when I couldn't run.  I look forward to when that day comes again when I want to run, not when I feel like I need to run.
