Three teenagers describe their hobbies

Three teenagers describe their hobbies

Melissa, runner I started running about a year ago. At first, I just ran 1 or 2 kilometres, but I now do about 10. My speed is improving too. rye joined a running club in the town centre. I didn't know any of the members before, but now most of them are my mates. My dad was a keen runner when he was younger - he was really fit, but he stopped when he hurt his leg. Actually, I need to order some new running shoes - just a simple pair. I don't think the expensive ones make you run faster!
Sharon, skateboarder I go skateboarding most evenings in the park. I suppose that's quite a lot, but the park is only a minute or two from our apartment, and I only stay there half an hour or so. Although I stay longer when my friends are there. Sometimes my cousin's there too. He's a beginner, and I'm teaching him a few moves. He's starting to get really good!
Latifa, rock climber Two of my best friends suggested I should start rock climbing, so now the three of us do it together. The mother of one of them takes us once or twice a month, but I'd like to do it every week. When I started, I didn't know you need to get so much stuff -and it isn't exactly cheap! I really love it. I don't think I'll ever get bored of climbing!
