Eight goodGym members came together to help the Phoenix cinema by distributing leaflets for the latest feature films. As usual, we gathered at the cinema itself to chat and get ready. As part of the fun Niki suggested we stated our favourite building. They ranged from the Eiffel Tower to Bazalgette sewer system! We warmed up in a nearby green space and split up into teams of walkers and runners. The runners led bye,Cloud made a race of it and finished quickly. ( John suggested it was his favourite leafleting run ever, with over 800 good deeds, that’s saying something!) Both teams met up again to do some 'fart' like training around a residential square.  The position on the start line was determined by your height as your suggested building. Antonio as the London Shard started with Bazalgette sewerage system at the back. ( I know it’s complicated! ) we did a few laps and then warmed down before walking back to the cinema. Most of us stayed at the cinema for some discounted refreshments.

Thanks for coming running and doing some good!

Next week is green week, highlighting how we can be more sustainable in our community. Goodgym Barnet will be promoting itself and Tiny Forest at events and helping out in Highgate Woods on a Tuesday group run. Check out the events and please look to support and share.
