Why did you do XC? Well.. first of all.. i suck at the rest of the sports.. football..
i'll get squished.. baseball.. no hand-eye coordination.. basketball.. i just
plain suck at it.. all the rest.. not in my interest.. etc.. anyways.. cross country
is like one of the sports that training will get u success.. well.. most things
are like that.. but you know.. also.. to get fit.. if not already.. fitter.. get
ready for track.. now that's just the outter section of it.. the inner reasons..
cross country is one of those sports that require A LOT of dedication and mental
concentration.. and it can teach u to focus.. concentrate.. it can be also an
analogy to life.. its like a race.. there will be times during the race where
it'll be smooth like the downhill.. and then there comes the uphills and the pain..
same with life.. sometimes life'll be smooth.. the way u want it to be.. but at
times u'll face difficulties.. so ur only resolution is to endure it once it is
over.. then it'll be good again.. same as in xc.. pain will come to u somewhere
in ur run.. no doubt.. but when u get it.. dun quit or stop.. just endure it..
as coach would say.. "suck it up".. and keep focus on ur goals.. once
ur mind wanders away from xc.. ur dead.. and once u finish.. u get that feeling
that u've finished the race and that u've tried ur hardest and that u will be
looked up to because u overcame that pain.. so why am i saying this? it's becuase
when we finish that run and go back to our lives.. we will get these difficulties..
and we need to keep a focused mind to overcome it.. once we wander away or try
to stall or put it away for later.. it's gonna be worse.. but once we overcome..
we get the prize.. peace.. joy.. etc.. xc will help u achieve more.. with more
focus and concentration.. u can do better in ur studies.. work.. other sports..
etc.. In addition.. seeing how those ppl can run like super fast for long distances
gives inspiration.. i mean.. daym.. i want to be like one of them.. another thing..
sorry about this being soo long.. it gives a sense of desire.. u have to work
til the very end of the race... when ur running that last mile.. if u don't push
urself to kick like crazy.. ur just gonna waste urself by being passed.. but once
u go.. ok.. im gonna use up whatever's left in me and maybe beyond that for this
last mile.. and u keep pumping ur legs.. start to breathe heavily.. and feel pain
all over.. u'll end up doing a heck of a lot better.. time-wise.. and maybe end
up outkicking a few more guys.. which is a good feeling.. hah.. sorry about my
