I can answer any questions about long distance running. I can also talk about preparation for events, logistics, adventure, trail running, and training for long distances.
I prepared for and ran 2832 miles from Miami to Los Angeles in 2011, and am now preparing to run again from Los Angeles to Miami starting on January 1st 2014. I have ran the Miami Marathon, a Ragnar Relay from Miami to Key West (199 miles) and I run regularly at non-competitive events.
I write often about long distance running at http://100DaysOfMadness.com
My specialty is ultra-long distances. Where it comes to speed and short distance events my knowledge, and interest, are very limited, but in the field of very long distance I know how it is. Also, there is an entire separate culture and body of knowledge about ultramarathons that is not the same as for short distance races. Training and techniques for running ultramarathons (any race above 26.2 miles, most of them 50 or 100 miles long) is very different than that of "normal" races.

Cross country and track & field are very different worlds. There is an abyss of philosophical differences between them. I suggest you get involved with them in practices and read about it as much as you
Hi Anil, I am not qualified to talk about how to run a marathon, because I never ran any. I have done a lot of ultramarathons and ran across the USA, twice, but the pace is very different and the training
Distance is achieved with patience first. Start by jogging 5 miles, then very gradually speed up paying attention to your running form. Also, if you want distance I strong recommend you learn to run forefoot
It does simulate hill running quite well. As well as running on the treadmill flat simulates running on flat ground. It does so because the muscle groups you will be using on the treadmill will be about
