Twelve Runners looked to support the citizens advice barnet (CAB) by delivering leaflets to nearby streets in Hampstead Garden suburb and East Finchley. We warmed up and played truth or lie before hitting the streets. Do we really have a professional American football player, somebody born in Iran, somebody whose favourite colour is purple, a Portuguese terrorist and a fugitive from the Mexican authorities?
looks like some of us might be needing cab ourselves!
The Citizens Advice Barnet is a charity that provides free, independent, and impartial advice to millions of people every year in communities across England and Wales. Let’s hope some of our leafleting finds some generous supporters. Certainly, the security cars in the local Streets were interested in what we were doing- one even asked for a leaflet! We managed to deliver most of the leaflets before having to return back to the Phoenix Cinema for a little stretch.
thanks to the two runners from the citizens advice barnet Louise and Jack come again soon! Well done for your work in the community!
To end some of us had hot chocolate at the Phoenix Cinema. Yummy!
Thanks to all for coming running and doing some good!

What a wild mix of lies and half-truths

After a short warm up (yes it's getting chilly now) four Good Gymers Beattie, Rachel, Yesika and Moya made our way down the mean streets of East Finchley to Martin Primary School to get well stuck into a very large pile of fresh woodchips that needed spreading at their forest school. The caretaker John explained that we needed to get the pathway covered so we loaded up the wheelbarrow and wheelie bin and began work by the torchlight and soon got into the swing of things. We hear that a very special guest in a red suit and white beard might be visiting the forest school soon, so it had to look its finest. This was Yesika's first visit to the school, and she proved a dab hand with the rake, making swift and neat work on the long and winding path through the orchard. In the end we shifted the whole pile, and even had a bit left to go under the hammock. Shame we couldn't lie in it - it was time for a short run back to the Phoenix for our wind down. Thanks ladies!

A magnificent, seven GoodGym members came together to help their local community by keeping fit and doing a good deed! Our original good deed was to help a local park clearing paths, but unfortunately our host had to cancel. Fortunately the phoenix cinema requested us to distribute some leaflets for the some classic old films that they are presenting. We were more than happy to help this jewel in the crown of Finchley! There’s not many boroughs with one of the oldest cinemas in the world! ( that has continuously shown films and starts with the letter. P! ) We soon distributed all the leaflets using an Indian running technique. This then allowed us to do a nice loop along Mutton brook and back to the cinema. But not before we had made use of a outdoor gym and done some paired squats to build knee strength. It was a lovely evening to be out running and doing some good! Give a shout out to Cherian who led the group back to the Phoenix on her second group run.

Six GoodGym members came together to watch a film about running and to support the phoenix cinema.
Billy Runs Boston” is a film about a runner’s relationship with his sister and brother as he tries to qualify for Boston. The movie is directed by Tony Marra, a Toronto-based actor and runner.
Very generously, the director had given GoodGym Free tickets to see this film after coming along to one of our group runs.
This thought-provoking film delves into various issues facing the running community, including cheating, bullying of cheaters, over-training while injured, the pervasive impact of social media, and the deeply sensitive topic of suicide. Amidst these themes, it also celebrates the profound rewards and sheer joy of running. Complex family dynamics play a pivotal role in weaving the narrative of the film, adding depth and emotion to the story.
Harvey Gallagher, Good gym Runner said this about the film
Not just a film about running. But a thought provoking drama about adversity, making mistakes and keeping going.

We really loved the film by Tony Marra and the Q&A at the end. Phoenix was a great welcoming venue for Billy Runs Boston, a film entirely shot on iPhones with the use of cinema lenses, using actors and non-actors to deliver incredible performances. A must see.

A truly heartfelt film. Brilliantly captivating. A must for all to see! Thank you GG Barnet and the Phoenix cinema.

Thanks! I’m so happy the Phoenix connected us. My time in London wouldn’t have been as rewarding without GoodGym! Email from Tony Marra
