A true sport that requires more ability than any non-runner will ever know. It takes hard work and time. Typically you run a 5k or 3.1 miles. Not to be confused with track where there are many different races. Cross Country is definitely a real sport, I don't see anyone else work as hard as runners do. The feeling one gets from finishing a race is impossible to describe, but its the best feeling in the world. Cross country is something that only true runners understand, it takes more than just running, you have to be fit and toned everywhere in your body, you have to have the ability to push through the pain, it takes endurance and stamina, but most of all it takes will power. You have to be willing to try.
Cross Country - my sport is you're sports punishment.

The will to achieve means nothing without the will to believe.

Our shoes have more miles than your car.

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.

The best sport in the world! It's a lot of hard work, but it's also a ton of fun! Running is so much fun, but so hard at the same time! It get's you in amazing shape (if you actually work hard in practice and eat well) and makes you feel good! Cross-country teams are always super nice. They're like a second family.
That group of people love to run and look like they're having a good time! They must be in cross-country!

The most confusing sport in the whole world. You run four miles thinking you are going to die and hate every second of it, then as soon as you finish and catch your breath you think, 'Damn that was fun! Can't wait till next week's race!'
You are Cross Country's bitch.
I am Cross Country's bitch.
We are all Cross Country's bitch.

Cross Country is in fact a sport! It involves stamina and a very strong mind. If you are going to run for miles on end, you not only have to be ready physical wise, but mentally too.
Cross country is very hard btw

Normal human:Shit. I can't run any more!
XC Runner: Hey look, I just ran 8 miles
