Is there a difference from getting an image from dockerhub, between:

docker pull mongo
vs.
docker run mongo:tagName <----- (( I was shown this way by someone else )).

docker run executes a docker pull if the image is not yet locally cached, then runs it. docker pull just downloads the image to the local cache, but doesn't run it.
