"cross country's not a sport."
it isn't? can you push yourself so hard that you almost faint? can you run seven miles? or near the finish line, are you able to pass five girls to fucking take your title? can you push uphill and then sprint down? cheer your team mates on as youre running and sweating and can barely breathe? it's 3 miles of pure hell. your body hates you and says that everything is wrong. don't do that. it's physical, yes. but more than anything is is mental. you need to tell yourself that you fucking can pass that girl. you sprint your ass off to get to that finish.
so please, take a run in my shoes. is it a sport now?
