Hmm, we do a lot of weight training around these parts, but there are a few people that know a lot about endurance around here.

Maybe search for some of TriGWU's posts or something.

Alternately, the last thing I want to do is drive you away, but a site geared to running (assuming that is what you are specializing for) might have some advice for a younger person like yourself.

Whatever you are doing, check up on Berardi's 7 habits. Basically, limit the amount of junk you are eating, and make sure you eat lots of good healthy food. Heck, I can't even remember what I ate or if I cared about what I ate at that age.
