Barnet Report written by Paul Salman
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.

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!!!
