    Correct or not correct

    Hey,

    I am Graça, 66 years old and I live in Portugal.
    Yesterday my grandson asked me to help him with his english homework.
    Translate the tex below into Portuguese. when I started to read the text I notice that there are some writting mistakes - I think - because i don't want to believe that the teacher gave him a text with mistakes.

    could anyone help me sheking the text? - I marked what I think is wrong.
    I'm i right?

    Thanks


    At one time, I used to think that jogging was simply too
    impossible. I can remember a time when just a two-minute
    dash to catch a bus would leave me with red in the face and
    barely be able to breathe. The turning point for me came when
    a very persuasive friend talked me into the accompanying her
    on a four-kilometre run round the local park. I managed just
    five minutes before which my legs decided they’d had enough.
    l think it was that image of my friend as rapidly disappearing
    into the distance that it stuck in my mind, and led me to
    take up seriously a sport which has genuinely and benefited
    my health, state of mind and fitness. My love of jogging is now
    about three years of old and is prone to the natural peaks and
    troughs that affect by most enthusiasms. Recently, I’ve been
    going jogging just once a week. But I’ve reached the point where,
    however many long I leave between runs, I can still go out for
    twenty minutes, and feel any better for it. I guess there is
    a risk of gradually losing out my fitness, but having overcome
    the problem before, I know it will never be so difficult again.

    Hello,

    Are you sure it is not an error-correction test?
