Drills, drills drills. When I played football in high school I had some great yardage, and now when I play rec I run the same drills and smoke the competition.
Work on speed exercises. Suicides are a tried and true method for strengthening your leg muscles quick start-stop times. High speed sprints alternated with low speed jogs help your body adjust to speed intervals like the 100 meter. Water drills are also good in that they add resistance to your running. Try sprinting back and fourth the shallow end of a pool to increase speed strength in your legs. Good luck!

run hills with parachutes or weigh vests

don't run with weights on your legs, unless you want all of your joints in your legs to disconnect.
Would u rather run in the winter or the summer? explain why?
Easy answer. Just look at the competitors at any track meet and you'll see the sprinters all look like body builders. Any distance up to a mile is mostly upper body strength. So get to the gym and get a strength building regimen.
