    Thumbs down Ran Run Runs

    Is the following sentence correct?
    I ran to see the show right now!

    No. 'Ran' is in the past, but 'right now' is in the present.

    Possible:

    I ran to get here on time for the show.

    I am running to get to the show.

    I ran to see the show yesterday.

    All best wishes,

    Petra
