Running is pretty damn hard when you’re just flying through the streets solo. Pushing a jogging stroller at the same time? That’s hero status right there.
A crappy stroller will only make it a bigger struggle—so you gotta be smart about this purchase.
#4 Bumbleride Speed Jogging Stroller
“You need a stroller that has a smooth ride, an adjustable handle, a front wheel that can swivel or lock in place, and one that’s lightweight enough to lift up and put in your trunk. This one delivers. It’s also easy to clean, has great sun coverage for your child, and a five-point breakaway harness along with a bar to hold the child in.” —Sara Haley, pre- and postnatal fitness expert @sarahaleyfit of http://sarahaley.com/.
Thank you Sara for your recommendation!!

We had the pleasure of meeting Paula and David at Run She Is Beautiful in Santa Cruz, CA. Below is an excerpt from their recent post about Stroller Running during their visit to San Diego, CA for the Rock N Roll Marathon.
“Let’s chat about a stroller for a hot minute. It’s not a secret that 99% of all my running is done with a stroller. Fact. However what I don’t share enough about is that I have tried quite a few strollers, either because I own quite a few (ummmm Dave thinks I have a stroller hoarding problem. I refuse to talk about it) or I have been able to borrow a stroller. I use the stroller for running errands to long runs to all kinds of training workouts. My strollers get put through a lot! Not only with the miles that I put on them, but also with Asher and his behaviors that come along with his disability. Let’s not forget that he was able to literally break a stroller seat less than a year ago because of said behaviors…”
“Most recently someone reached out and she was very detailed on her needs, upcoming races and so on. I did my long spiel but in the end I did something I don’t typically do and I gave a one stroller recommendation: the Bumbleride Speed. This stroller is a strong choice for an avid stroller runner and a once in a while stroller runner. It is multi-purpose, filling this gap in stroller running thinking. Stroller running is not all-or-nothing where you either run with a stroller and try to get faster, better, stronger or you just don’t like it at all. This stroller welcomes in those runners who don’t necessarily want to be a stroller runner, but perhaps need it for necessity on certain days or for easy runs. With all the running strollers on the market, this stroller checks a lot of boxes that no other stroller I have seen or tried addresses and when I was recently asked “If you could pick one stroller…” my answer was confidently Bumbleride.” – Read More
