Yep, except that by calling run() directly, your thread is being executed on a single thread and is not getting its own thread.
Try something like this:

Then try the same code using t.start()
Then only difference between my code and yours is the second Thread1 instance and the sleep block. (and it prints the name so you can see which Thread1 instance is running)
