A very nice Start kicks off everything. And keep your Shoulders Straight. Well Try. Because You dont want your energy to be absorbed by ur shoulders rocking. thats more work to be done. My energy will be focused towards ur legs.SO proper posture is one of the key to running faster. each Step You take Just Power Through. Head Down At start. Run on toes at start. Gradually Raise Your Head when you are increasing in speed.

If you have the option, train with a local track team. When I ran track in high school, we always had college football players and some pro football players train with us so they can boost their speed.

But if that's not an option, now that a sprinters speed come from their arms more than their legs (leg strength is still very important). The quicker your arms go the quicker you legs go. Also work on your body posture (you don't want to be hunged over while you're running, stay straight up). Another tip is make sure you have a good warm up and you stretch well before any run, your warm up makes a difference in your speed.
