Requires no skill, all you literally have to do is run. The easiest activity one can do and it is called a sport.
The only reason people do cross country is because they are too small or fragile to do sports like football, soccer, volleyball, or any contact sports. People don't go to Cross country events because who wants to see someone exercise for 15 minutes?!?!?!
This "sport" gets way too much publicity and the runners think that they are better than anyone else simply because they can win. they say Cross is a team event but it really boils down to an individual effort. It is a competition of who is more in shape, not who is better and smarter.
Cross runners often have many shirts explaining that they can run. Most of them are putting down true sports by saying things like, "My sport is your sports punishment"
Please! Your "sport" is exercise. My sport takes BASIC exercise and requires more skill to be able to run AND throw, kick, catch, dive, etc.
Bitch you exercise!!!!!
You should come and watch my cross-country meet, I'm gonna go for a PR
I would but I don't wanna watch people run around, its like nascar without the exciting parts
"I scoff at just how physically pathetic you are, not only do you lack the stamina of a marathon runner or even those who do half marathons, you're also stick thin and have a laughable musculature. Why don't you try a real sport for once, at least you wouldn't look like a skeleton with sleeves."
