    It's actually my second time running in China. I think the track and the weather are good, and my performance today is good, too. I've done on last Sunday the Chong Qing Half Marathon. I didn't take the first place. In Longhua I took the first place.

    We are fascinated by the hospitality of residence in Guanlan. The subdistrict office organized lion dances, band performances and cheerleaders to cheer for us. Also, the trams and beautiful sceneries along the route of the mini marathon are evidences of the great development Longhua District has gain over the years.

    I haven't been to Shenzhen for years. The city has seen great development and changes. It's also my first time seeing a tram. I would like to take a closer look at the tram later, and if time available, take a ride on it. It will be part of my memories with Shenzhen, with Longhua District, and with the Longhua trams.
