"But the strategy in cross country is simple and brutal. You go out and run and you run until you think you simply cannot take one more step, you run until it feels like your head is a hornets’ nest with its own population explosion and your lungs are on fire and your heart is a beating jackhammer fast and your stomach is churning with nausea and your legs weigh 400 pounds apiece and you’re wondering seriously about your own sanity, wondering why the name of exhaustion you ever answered the starter’s gun … well, you run until all of this happens … and then you run some more."
