When and what are you eating and drinking the 2 hours prior to your long runs?
Consider reducing you fat intake and eliminating protein 2 hours before. Fat takes a lot longer to empty your stomach. Some people don't do well consuming protein (which some endurance drink mixes now have) before or during hard activity.
What it your cool down routine? How exhausted are you after these runs?
For runs over 10 miles you do need to consume some calories durign hte run. You might have better luck eating a energy gel, then drinking 6-8oz of water water. Less total volume in your stomach. For 14 miles maybe consume 2 energy gels but otherwise only drink water.
Try something other than the "cheap" energy drinks like gatoraide. They have a heavier syrupy sweet flavor. I thnk I'd puke if I drank a nunch of that stuff. They use mostly dextrose. You might do better with some other products on the market. For races, I'm using a lighter drink that's only 100 calories per 16oz serving, but has plenty of electrolytes.
You do need to resolve the issue. The best time to refuel your muscles is 15-60 miuntes after a workout. Even though it sounds heavy, you might try eating a banana or milk after you've cooled down and relaxed a little following your run.
remember if you ate any solid food witin 1 hour, it's likely still in your stomach. If you ate a larger meal, within 2 hours, it's still there. Once you start running, depending on you level of exertion/pace, you body may divert blood form your stomch to your muscles and that's when you get sick.
