How do I get my 5 month old puppy dog to stop biting her leash?

My pup is very well-behaved, and walks with her tend to be fine, but something in her brain associates running with having the leash in her mouth. The second we pick up the pace, she goes straight for it. I don't know how to discourage it. I've rubbed hot sauce on the leash but that only works for a day or so. She's excellent with clicker training, but I can't figure out how that would be useful in this situation, since I'm trying to stop a behavior. Any ideas?
