馬拉松 – Marathon

A total of 10,000 runners participated in the marathon near Taroko Gorge, held in Hualien, Taiwan. The runners must have gotten more enjoyment out of running in such a beautiful place than the competition itself. 一萬人參加的花蓮太魯閣馬拉松昨開始. 在那樣的地方跑步八成享受多於競爭. yi1wan4 ren2shen1 jia1 de Hua1lian2 tai4 lu3 ge2 ma3la2song1 zuo2 kai1shi3 . zai4 na4yang4de di4fang pao3bu4 ba1cheng2 xiang3shou4 duo1 yu2 […]
