It looks like it, but it’s not a secret code neither these are the lottery numbers for this weeks draw (or are these? 🤔)
These are the bid numbers of the 5 GGers who gave it all at this morning’s 10km Race the Neighbours in North London: Sarah, Euclides, Moya, Antonio, Cloud.
One colour (can you guess?) and one team (have you guessed it yet?) unite us, however the competition was on as we supported different postcodes! We like friendly competition and we have done very well hiding our race rivalry in our pictures: see the proof, scroll down!
Euclides and Sarah running for N22 spreading good Haringey vibes. Antonio and Moya supporting N2 flying the flag for East Finchley and Hillbilly Cloud running for N10 paying tribute to her old neighbourhood. It all got a bit bananas by the end (see pictures).
RACE HIGHLIGHTS (in no particular order);
Fantastic performance from everyone in and off the race course!! We all gave it a hundred RaN ten percent!
As far as the eye RaN see, we started the race with the end in mind: we visualised the post race coffee and pastry and we nailed it! That’s probably why so many course PB’s were set!
After the race was RuN and dusted, we headed to Muswell Hill for an old good race debrief and coffee catch up. We have learned that Sarah is a keen marathon runner and runs trail marathons for FUN because road ones are overrated 🙄 We couldn’t even get our head around doing a flat road one and yet she is running the “fun” ones week in week out! kudos to you, Sarah! Your personal story was very inspirational!!
At the time of this report we still didn’t know which Neighbourhood took the Cherry Tree Cup home, but we all want to assume that it was ours because we all felt like winners!
By running out there today, we have spread the GG values, our colours around north London and contributed to making an impact on our physical, mental and social health! Boom!
We hope to you see this Tuesday the 6th at the Phoenix Cinema for our next mission. You can sign up here: https://www.goodgym.org/happenings/helping-a-charity-cinema-phoenix-f82496d7-56e5-4942-8093-1f0226c49750
Keep up the great work GGers!!!

Barnet Report written by Cloud (She/Her)
What a turn up we had this Tuesday in Barnet with dedicated GoodGymers coming from afar to witness and take part in the greatest Litter Picker army brigade we've had this year (so far!).
Thanks John and Jacqueline for coming out of your GG boroughs to spread the joy you get from the multiple missions you're completing in your area. - We aspire to catch up with your collective +900 GG deeds by...by...by......very soon! :)
We've had no Leaflets to distribute for The Phoenix cinema so we decided on a group run around Cherry Tree Wood and some litter picking in the same area.
Litter did we know though that Moya would WOW us with an energetic warm up and short training session which was recorded as part of her UK Athletics Run Leader training. - She is stepping up quickly within the GG ladder so we can keep on growing GG Barnet....THANK YOU! As in all productions (or so they say)...film directors deserve a mention, and clearly Antonio deserves one for the best training session filmed with amazing angles and perfect lighting throughout... GREAT CONTRIBUTION!
Strong running on the pitch yesterday: Beattie, Jyothsna, Rachel, Niki. Watch this space as they are getting ready for the next Barnet Track Attack and you will want to be part of it, too!
Everyone was on top form (and behaviour!) but a special mention to Simone and Jacqui who couldn't look any happier while little picking (scroll down to see their picture!)
Probably jealous that Moya was taking the limelight, Paul didn't doubt for a moment to offer to lead a 10 minutes yoga session at the end of the evening. Aren't we lucky in Barnet ??? Picture this: 12 GGers wearing our red t-shirt taking the center stage in the middle of Cherry Tree Wood oblivious of all onlookers, focusing on their breathing and their best down dog pose as the sun was coming down. Yeah, you got it, a powerful MOB campaign to recruit more GGers! We had a handful of people approaching us during the evening asking what was all that about! To what we happily answered: Woah-oh, the hokey cokey!! ...Clearly, our yoga skills need fine tunning so watch out for Paul online yoga sessions and he will make sure to take you from a Hokey Cokey to proper Yoga progamme in no time!.
Well done everyone, you make a difference every time you come out! To our community, to those around you and to your own wellbeing! Keep it up!
