Jo the Rathlete (Part 1)

We have a new tutorial!

Jo the rat, also known as the Rathlete.

Jo the Rathlete is an inveterate sportrat since he was a little baby.

He is Candy’s cousin, do you remember the little rat who loves Halloween and candies?

Well, Jo is different because he loves healthy food and every day he gets up very early to training, now his plan is to run his first marathon next fall, although he has also participated in cycling tours and some sports activities in his neighborhood.

Would you encourage him?
