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.

the best SPORT out there. it takes a certain type of person to run cross country and to enjoy it. Distance runners love running and are superior to everyone else. runner girls are the best looking and thats just one of the many positive points of cross country.
Cross country runners are the toughest people out there.

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.

XC is 2% physical, 1% mental and 97% insanity. XC is the best sport ever. DO NOT let those gay ass-grabbing football players tell you otherwise. You run over ridiculous terrains and hills. XC is NOTHING like track. Track is for pussies that can't handle more than 2 miles of running. WARNING: if you join this sport you WILL experience ALL types of weather, possibly in one meet. ANd you will wear uncomfortable short shorts, usually with built in underwear.
You can tell by his torn socks, blankets and pillows, three pairs of shoes, and his massive amounts of food in his bag, that he is a cross country runner.

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...

A sport of endurance. this translates to: a sport where people run themselves into the ground for the sole pursuit of bettering themselves as athletes. Cross country running truly is the purest sport in the world, it consists of two or more (usually much more) individuals racing against each other and themselves, my physical ability against yours. The kind of pain cross country runners go through is indescribable, but it is the most intense pain I have ever experienced. Cross country runners often wear short shorts, this is because wearing longer shorts will mess up their strides and slow them down. While this has attracted ridicule from many non-runners, this is not a problem for runners that are not insecure and do not question their sexuality.
that cross country race was awesome! i PR'ed by 30 seconds!
