A great sport that requires both mental and physical strength.... but you have to be careful or you can screw up your body, especially if you're a girl.... it requires hours of training and is an awesome sport.
I just got home from xc, and my shin splints are killing me,give me some ice,the remote, and some food... man if cross country girls got injured less, they'd be called football players*falls onto couch and sits there for hours*

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 greatest sport ever created. EVER. Usually bashed by other sports like football and tennis. This is why we steal their tennis balls and run past them like beasts with great leg muscles. Cross Country runners can be identified by their hard work, determination and the massive amounts of food they consume while gaining only solid muscles. They can take a spike to the back of the leg and keep running with blood pouring out of their leg. They can fall in mud and swallow dirt and get straight back up and continue onto an amazing PR. We run until we can't go another step and then we kick into overdrive and sprint the rest of a race or workout and have a smile on our sweat soaked faces when we're done. We love each other and our coaches and don't bother with what the rest of the school thinks. We quietly sneak off to a race, districts and state and skip school to be awesome. Because that's how we roll! Others refer to us as "those crazy runners" but we refer to ourselves as "those sexy beasts" since it's far more accurate. Cross Country requires a work ethic that no other sport can ever match.
Things Cross Country runners say:
"Running won't kill you, you'll pass out first."
"It hurts up to a point, and then it can't hurt any worse."
"We're not here to be last, we came to win."

The most difficult sport. Cross country requires both skill and a work ethic. People who don't like cross country are just mad because they can't do it.
If somebody calls you a cross country geek, it means they can't run worth shit.

A sport where it's athlete doesn't have to try to degrade other sports so that they can feel good about the miniscule and mediocre work they do and call it a sport.

Quite frankly the ultimate sport.
Soccer Player: You don't do anything in cross country it requires no skill
Runner: Sure *goes and sprints mile intervals for 2 hours*
Soccer Player: I try to degrade other sports because I know soccer isn't a sport
Soccer Player 2: Dude your dick is tiny
Soccer Player: That's because I don't do a real sport

The toughest and best sport of all. Takes extreme amounts of dedication and skill to be good at. Besides being a physical sport, cross country is also mental and the top runners must be able to push even when they are tired. People on the team run no matter what, even if there is rain, sleet, snow, ect. Some people make fun of cross country runners and claim it isn't a sport, but they are just jealous that they are out of shape and can't run more than 1/4th of a mile. And no, we are not gay just because we wear short shorts.
