I have the following values in the same table, "things". And I want to add to this table the fields where run_id = '2' so that they are in run_id = '3'

"things table" before
run_id      column2      column3
2      horse      ion
2      joke      war
2      dog      cat
3      pig      computer
3      lost      dead
3      dune      funk

"things" table after executing sql:
run_id      column2      column3
2      horse      ion
2      joke      war
2      dog      cat
3      pig      computer
3      lost      dead
3      dune      funk
3      horse      ion
3      joke      war
3      dog      cat

What is the SQL to do this?
