The best sport ever, because there are no skills involved, it is purely a measure of how badly you want to win, and how much and for how long you are willing to sacrifice your body to win. cross country gets hardly any publicity, which makes it so that the athletes aren't doing it for fame or fortune, they are doing it to try and prove that they are tougher than the next guy

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 true sport. All other athletes are just players.
Cross-country runners have true balls. All others just play with them.
Hey Tony how do you feel today after cross country practice?
Great coach, despite that 10-mile practice.

The best and most difficult sport ever. It involves running thru grass, mud, and dirt for miles. You have to be really athletic to be good at it.
When I got my varsity letter in cross country freshman year, my freinds told me it didn't count because I didn't letter in a "real" sport. WHATEVER.

A difficult sport that involves lots of long distance running. Cross country involves running about 5-12 miles a day for practice, and 5 kilometers for every race at the high school level. Cross country is somewhat related to track. However, track is shorter distances over a rubber surface while cross country is a long distance race over grass and/or trails.

Our cross country team kicks ass.
