look up any word, like poopsterbate:
A sport in which extremly fit people with a hell of alot of metal strenght run until they faint. After a race, throwing up is common, leading to the saying, "If you don't throw up, you didn't try hard enough." Cross country runners are often mocked for having enough balls to wear short shorts, but cross country runners usually don't mind because they go to practice everyday and talk it up with girls.
runner one "Man, I just threw up after my cross country race!"

runner two "Good job man!"

The greatest and most pure sport ever created. Cross Country is usually thought of as insane and people cannot wrap their minds around why we runners do it. The sport is also overshadowed by Football, which is also played in the Fall. It requires dedication, and unthinkable amounts of physical and mental strength. Pain is a normal part of an XC runners life, and sacrifice become second nature to them. If one puts their all into the sport, it can be the most gratifying experience ever lived through. The comradery gained from powering through the cold, rain, mud, dust, heat and whatever nature can throw at you tempers the bond between teamates and friends. XC runners are usually good people, exemplary students, and quite social as well. If you try in XC, it is impossible to lose. You run until you die, then you get up and keep going. I know all of this from experience, and I watched some of the most dedicated runners ever born reap the benefits of their blood, sweat,and tears. Cross Country is truly one of the greatest sports ever created.
"Our sport is your sport's punishment."

"Cross Country runners are among the purest, most admirable people to live."

A sport usually overshadowed by football. One of the most hardest and grueling sports. Yes Cross Country is a sport, just because it doesnt involve a ball doesnt mean its a sport. You have to be physically fit and be able to have the mentality to run like a crazy mofo to participate. I tried football my freshman year and switched to cross country. trust me or any other person who has done cross country and football, cross country is more demanding and harder.
Cross Country: if it were any easier they'd call it football

A sport requiring hard work and endurance as well as alot of time. It is the most exciting sport possibly of them all because of the terrain you take on which varies from track to track. It rapes Hockey,Baseball,Bowling,And parts of Football to a tee and makes you a better person after you run it.
Dude: Man i went and ran cross country and it made me feel great, right after i almost fell on my knees because my legs hurt so much.
Me:Ha, Dude look at my State rings, one for Cross Country, Basketball, Indoor State Track...

The best, and hardest, sport ever. It is also a precursor to hell.
Cross country involves dying everyday, and then going back for more the next day.

The most hardcore sport period. Where a person fights against all odds to get better. A sport that some say isnt, but in truth is older than all other sports.
