Cross Country (from a ex-XC runner's view)
Side affects may include but are not limited to:
-strong comraderie (some call it super gay, we call it bromance)
-super manly looking legs (until we have our girlfriends shave them for some god-awful reason, seriously we weren't even drunk)
-abs that you can wash your clothes on
-the ability to run from the po po when they show up to a party uninvited
-GETTING MAD BITCHES! (actual results may vary)
Now let me turn on nerd mode. Why people call cross country runners gay / crazy:
Running scares the hell out of most people because it hurts. Anybody who likes pain is a nut. No arguement. Myth confirmed. As far as the gayness goes, yeah we play a lot of grab ass at practice, because you have to have fun to deal with the bullshit thrown at you in practice. That's not why you call us gay. You're scared as hell that somebody enjoys that pain and are...dare I say...intimidated... in the subconcious. Not because were so massive *sarcasm*, but because we just won't fuckin quit.
:Did you see that guy?
:Yeah he's a Cross Country runner and a much better athlete than us football players
:Yeah let's call him gay, because that's what everybody does when their jealous as hell of somebody.
