...And it was great! Eight keen GoodGymers took to the streets, full moon lighting our way (and one or two lamp posts). Armed with a sizeable batch of leaflets and brochures for 'Kinoteka', the 21st Polish Film Festival also being hosted by the Phoenix Cinema, Rachel, Kirsten, Cloud, Niki, Emily, Theodore, Moya and Antonio, delivered everything in no time. The session was co-led by Cloud and Antonio and once all was delivered, we made sure to complete a 5K run, stopping along the route to do some stretches and sprinting. And even though we received a weather warning on our phones (sorry, did I mention it?), we soldiered through.

In Greek mythology the Phoenix is often depicted as a self-generated bird, born from its own ashes requiring no assistance in taking flight, in some variations of the myth, the Phoenix is aided by the gods in its ascent to the sky. (thanks Chat GTP!) Today we were the gods!
