103 Miles With Sharks -Fill in the blanks exercise

Any day now, Diana Nyad will set out to do something no athlete has ever done: swim all day and all night, then all day and all night, then all day again.
She will swim about 60 hours in the churning sea, 103 miles across the Straits of Florida from Cuba to Key West. Every hour and a half, she will stop to tread water for a few minutes as she swallows a liquid mixture of predigested protein and eats an occasional bit of banana or dollop of peanut butter.

This is the beginning of The New York Times article 103 Miles With Sharks. Go to The Learning Network and fill in the blanks in the paragraphs with only one word.
