Hello Everyone!
So Track Season starts in approximately two months and I have decided it is probably time to do so intense training. I am tall, and incredibly skinny and I have huge issues gaining any sort of weight. I run the 100m, 200m, 80m Hurdles, and the 800m. (m= meters) So I am looking for tips on gaining muscle, and on making my routine a little more exciting. I also am curious on how to improve my techniques. I have access to an indoor gymnasium. Any advice is welcome.

For a runner you're probably burning more calories than you're eating change that while eating healthy and you'll start gaining in no time. Lift heavy and eat healthy

Thanks for the advice. I always thought I ate enough. But chances are, I am just my eating enough of the RIGHT foods. I may also have a little bit of an overactive metabolism. Haha Do you have any suggestions for calorie enriched healthy meals?

Thank You! Sorry to hear about your injury.. That would definitely suck. I am not familiar with working with weights, do you have any tips? And also for the sprinting drills, right now,  it is the dead of winter so I only have an indoor basketball court to do any sort of running in. Are there any drills I can do in that small of a space? 
Thanks again
