Course the thick mud through my veins.
Battle the tedious pains.
Live inside your head
and fantasize instead.
Finish where nothing remains.

I dont find this at all relateable to cross country, but do however, really like this for different reasons. To me, it's inspires to go through the little aggravations of life and leave things better than you find them.

I love this. It's short and simplistic  but so good. I can truly relate because I ran track for three years and this is exactly what it felt like. Great job

I will admit, I found this one was a little difficult to understand until I looked at the title for a second time. Your right, there are times when your working at something and it's so hard that the only way you can acomplish it is to pull yourself out of the world around, ignoring distractions and difficluties and the oh-so-sweet temption to quit, and simly think of nothing but the goal itself.
