What is an electric field get as you get closer to a charge?

An electric field gets stronger the closer you get to a charge exerting that field. Distance and field strength are inversely proportional. When distance is increased, field strength decreases. The opposite is true as well. Additionally, field strength varies as the inverse square of the distance between the charge and the observer. Double the distance and you will find that there is 1/22 or 1/4th the electric field strength as there was at the start of your experiment.

Should you start running in your teens if so for how long and how far?

I started running at 14 yo but I know a lot of runners who started earlier. If you are new to running you should go for duration and not distance. Figure on running for 30 minutes a day to start and one day a week running for an hour. When you get your endurance built up you can work on speed. Your local school should have a team that is a great way to get some coaching and advice on running as well.

How do you train for the 800 meters?

start by running for 6 minutes... then continue to cover the same distance in less and less time... but you must start with 6 minutes.... (should be close to a mile) and run every day. when you get to the 800m you can pretty much sprint the entire distance... (2 minutes)

Do you need to use a starting block for the mile event?

No. You don't want a starting block. Starting blocks are for the use of short (running/sprinting) events such as the 70m and 100m. The reason why we use starting blocks is to push off of something to get a fast start. Thus, you don't need/want one for the mile event as you should not be running as fast as you can all the way.
