Well I did not run myself, but my son ran the youth run, it was so awesome to see all those kids. I definitely got the bug and it really makes me want to do it next year so 7 year old said he wanted to as well so we will make it a family affair. Can't wait.

Hope you all do well tomorrow.

Everyone ready for this weekend??? I almost signed up for the 10k, but my friend wouldn't go for it, so we're just doing the 5k.

We bought the pasta ticket too...I know it wasn't necessary for the 5k, but we want to shmooze a little bit.

@ GINGYCAT40 - I started at the top of Old Sackville Road where the trail stops/starts. I had to park on the side of the road though.

Here is a link to the google map I searched.

You can see the cars on the right hand side of the road are parked. This is where I parked. Sometimes you can see cars parked there when you are driving on the 101. I was always wondering what they were doing. Now I know.

The trail is on the left, you can see the opening with the board fence.

Hey thanks for your note.. I have not signed up for the 5K yet, but I best get at it.

My daughter started training with me, but has fallen off the rails, but she would still like to do it even if she walks it. So my goal is to finish my 9week 5K training. I am going into week # 7.

Thanks for the tip on the hills - uggh. That is something I have not done, and I have not physically done the 5K Marathon Route and was not aware of the hill at the end.

Where do you start the trail on the Old Sackville Road - I would like to check it out?

I know there is a place to start behind the Old Ponderosa in Bedford.

Good luck with your training. emoticon emoticon

I'm doing the Bluenose 5k with a friend! Woo!

I just went to the trail off the Sackville/Bedford highway the other day for the first time. This trail is sooo nice and great to run on - just FYI.

The trail starts on Old Sackville Road and goes all the way through Bedford.


I was told by a friend who does half marathons that it is a good idea to find a big hill and run up and down that same hill 4 times, 2 times per week. This will increase your speed and hill endurance.

BTW - the Bluenose 5k has a long hill at the end before the finish line.


My coworker is doing the 10k.

I am in the outskirts of Halifax/Dartmouth and work in Halifax.

I am not a runner, but I am hoping to come to like/love it.

I did 20 mins the other day and still can't believe it.

Also looking for Spark Buddy in this area.... someone to keep in contact with...help support/motivate etc...
