A sport that most other sports look down on. Of course, they don't have the balls to try it out for themselves, and if they do, they go home crying after the first week. (see Ultimate Football)
Damn, but those cross country kids just ran 15 miles... But they're gay...

The sport of running on all types of different terrain. Its tough but you feel good afterward. Mental and Physical strength is needed, discipline too. Injuries are pretty common. It's not as bad as it appears, actually fun. Workouts may include hills or tempos. Usually everyone on the team is really welcoming and accepting, not d-bags/bitches like the basketball, soccer, or volleyball teams. The XC guys are cute but the girls are hot. Overall, this sport is other sports' punishment.
Xc girl: Oh man, i have to miss the CIF final race because of my shin splints. I hate shin slints.

volleyball girl: How did you get shin splints?

Xc girl: Cross country

volleyball girl: Well all you're doing is just running. It shouldn't be that bad

Xc girl: You try running 8 miles a day. Running is a punishment for your sport. Yeah, just running...

volleyball girl: I stand corrected...

what takes so much effort and indurance, a sport which is one person against everyone else, but in the end it's just you. You're in it for you. We run over 10 miles every day and can deal with more pain than you could ever imagine. Don't make fun of us. We can beat your asses any day, bitch.
Cross country is beast as shit and you're a pussy.

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."

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.
