How are you? I’m doing fine. Last week I went running with my best friend, Kate. We hadn’t run for ages. You see, Kate __________run for a while, because she had broken her leg. Luckily, she __________ run now! I have to admit that I felt pretty tired afterwards. I __________ hardly control my breathing. Kate felt really miserable afterwards and so we went home. I didn’t mind at all, because I was so tired that I __________sleep for ages. Kate told me that she was glad that she __________ run again, although she had enjoyed lying on the couch for some time. What about you, Allison? __________ you run five miles in an hour? I know you don’t care much for running, so the answer will probably be ‘no’. So what about your one and only passion: dancing? __________ you still do all those difficult moves? If it hadn’t been for you I would never have __________ dance like I do now. So thanks again.
All the best,
