At a High School Reunion (タイトルから)
You look amazing.
Then I discovered indoor rock climbing. It’s changed my life in a big way

「〜なので驚きます」
surprised at, surprising
Well, I’m going to suggest that we use the phrase, “be surprised that -“.
OK.
So it would go something like, Urashima Taro was surprised that everything has changed.
And you don’t have to use that, you can, if you want. Either one is fine.
「彼女は彼に〜と言います」
say to him
Well, that’s not wrong, I mean we could use the verb, say here. Yeah, it would be, “she says to him -.” But I think it’s more conversational , ah, to use the verb, tell here. So I would recommend writing, she tells him -.
Oh, I see.

At a high school reunion, Tony is surprised that Maria looks amazing. She tells him that indoor rock climbing has changed her life in a big way.
