Load test your battery and alternator. Odds are that the alternator is weak. 


It could be a worn drive belt or a vacuum leak. If it's much louder than normal, it's a vacuum leak. If it sounds normal, then it's drive belt, or possibly alternator (does the battery light flash before it dies?). 

It could also be a clogged throttle body (nothing that a can of MAF Sensor cleaner can't fix).
