Period 2
January 7, 2012 ("cross-country-460x300)" Claim: Cross Country
is a real sport.. (XC Meme) Counterargument: Cross country is not a real sport because it does not require equipment or skill. Rebuttal: The definition of a sport, does not say it requires equipment. A runner also needs some skills, such as endurance and speed. Concession: Although cross country requires skill, a runner does not need as much skill as a basketball or lacrosse player. A cross country runner only has to focus on finishing, where as another athlete has to deal with equipment, running, scoring, etc. Emotional Appeals

Cross Country Claim: Cross Country is a real sport. "I always loved running...it was something you could do by yourself, and under your own power. You could go in any direction, fast or slow as you wanted, fighting the wind if you felt like it, seeking out new sights just on the strength of your feet and the courage of your lungs." -Jesse Owens "Racing teaches us to challenge ourselves. It teaches us to push beyond where we thought we could go. It helps us to find out what we are made of. This is what we do. This is what it's all about." -PattiSue Plumer After joining cross country, I learned what hard work truly was. Cross country helps produce a community of committed and dedicated people. Cross country showed me what it means to a part of a team. http://www.firstcoastnews.com/news/local/article/205382/3/High-School-Athletes-in-Black-to-Fight-Proposed-Cuts- (fl runners) (PVXC) (Ross) "There are friendships that have been forged by dedication and by pain, by defeat and by accomplishment, by mud and by sweat, by laughter and by tears. Friends who have seen each other when we look our worst and when we look our best, when we feel like we could collapse and when we've won our biggest victory. Friends who encourage us when we want to stop, stick with us when we're about to fall, and run beside us not just in races but everyday. These are the types of friendships that don't fade with time and don't dwindle with distance. These are running partners."
