That was nice. I remember me and my cousins when we attended the Bloomsday race. That was fun. This is one of those races where people just come out to have fun; you do not have to be the quickest or even fast in any way. Simply take the opportunity to walk, run, jog, or whatever you would like to do to get across the finish line.

I'm a tiger. I'm brave and confident.

I'm a chinese !

I'm a Ox  !
