How do you run a sewing machine smoothly?

Go slowly at first then increase your speed as you gain confidence. Always focus on the alignment, not the needle or the stitching: they move too fast for your eyes to follow plus it prevents you from seeing the bigger picture. To make a smooth curve, stitch slowly while rotating the fabric using both hands.
