10 Best Jogging Strollers For 2018 – Women’s Health Magazine

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!!

Bumbleride Speed Jogging Stroller Vs. BOB Revolution Jogging Stroller – PegLegMegRuns.wordpress.com

Running with Speed Jogging Stroller

“But first, let me provide a little background on my stroller experiences. When I was pregnant I registered for the BOB Revolution SE and my wonderful Santa Cruz running friends got me one (thank you!). I literally did no research, it was the only running stroller brand I know about and I liked the navy blue. My real advice is do some research, the Bumbleride may not be your dream stroller – maybe it’s the BOB or another great ride. But find out what is important to you in a stroller and then pick one. That’s my real regret but such is life. Anyway, we didn’t use the stroller until miniKEG was 8 weeks old because I didn’t bother with a carseat adapter (she was content hanging in the carrier with mom or dad) and I didn’t run with her until she had good neck and core support – about 5 months. But once I started running, I found some of the limitations the BOB Revolution SE posed for me. The handlebar was too short and caused me back pain and because this was our only stroller, it came with us everywhere and I found the BOB to be long and cumbersome at times. The other irk for me was the basic undercarriage of the stroller was hard to get stuff in and out of (remember I do a lot of errand running). When my running buddy/partner in crime, Connie, got the Bumbleride I was immediately jealous: I loved the color, the design, and the adjustable handlebar. Fast forward a couple months, and I, too, had the Bumbleride (thanks Erin!)”…..Read More.

Meet Speed, By Bumbleride

Guest Blogpost by Jacqui Saldana

I have teamed up with Bumbleride to help them celebrate the release of a new addition to their stroller line up. The newest set of wheels is a designated running stroller so aptly named Speed. Speed features a thousand cool things, a few of which I have highlighted below. I was lucky enough to be one of the first to hit the pavement with Speed. When I signed up for my  5K last month I was in need of a stroller equipped for running/jogging. I actually reached out to Bumbleride to see if I could test out Speed and was seriously delighted when they agreed! Being a momma of two, I know buying baby gear can be a bit overwhelming. Which is why I wanted to share with you what I loved most about Bumbleride’s Speed. Hopefully this post is coming to you at the right time, or can be passed on to someone who is in the market for a pretty bad ass stroller.

Let me first start this all off by saying I am in no way a professional runner. I’d say I’m more of a professional walker who busts into a jog when a good song comes on through my headphones. I do love a good running stroller, but the Bumbleride Speed sold me more on its lightweight and easy one step fold. Anything that adds ease into my daily life gets a gold star.

My favorites of Speed and a few photos below.

The thing I noticed right away was the smooth push Speed offers. I know what you are thinking! A stroller is a stroller. But really, Speed was designed to take on all terrain which I am guessing is why the push is so soft. I was thrilled about this mostly because Mila is still really tiny. Though we 100% got clearance from her pediatrician on her being able to join me on a jog. I was still worried about her in there. With very little neck control I didn’t want her flopping around. Through out the smooth ride Mila was able to enjoy herself as best a baby can. She slept every. single. time. we used this stroller.

Jog
We were able to adjust the 5 point harness snug to fit her small body. (she currently is 11 pounds 25 inches) And with just one click the straps released and we could pick up Mila from the stroller pretty easily. Easy. Easy. There is theme. I love things that are just simple. 1, 2, done.

When we first got to see Speed it was at Bumbleride HQ. One of the first things that was shown to us was the handle bar. “Feel the handlebar!” At first I didn’t think much of it. But after using it in my race I found its smooth rubber grip to be extremely helpful. Of course, now I can’t remember what exactly that rubber is called. I do know it is PVC free and the entire handlebar adjusts up or down. Which is SUPER awesome since I’m tall.

Speed has an oversized sun canopy that offers SPF 45. If it doesn’t cover enough of baby, you can extend it further. I love this photo because one, Mila’s tiny feet kicking out. And two, shortly after this photo was taken Mila spit her pacifier out and it landed on the ground. Dan tried to grab it quick but kicked it and the pacifier fell into the ocean. We both started to laugh, then Mila started to cry so we packed up and left. It was pretty funny.

Lesson learned.

Pack more than one pacifier.

Even though I mentioned my favorite thing about this stroller was its one step fold…I lied. My favorite is actually the bell that comes installed on the side of the handlebar! I rang that puppy 24/7. It came in handy during my race. We also walked to grab ice cream and when the ice cream parlor called out our number for next to order…I rang my bell. I love that thing!

Who looks better. Guy who has great running form OR Mom who has terrible running form, but one seriously cool stroller? 😉

In all honesty Speed is pretty great. Aside from what makes it a great stroller it did something more for me. It made me fall back in love with running and working out. I think that is what really makes this a great piece. The comfort and functionality of Speed inspires me to get outside and do something healthy for myself. I kind of loved that Mila was lulled to sleep every time we used this stroller. It allowed me to stay out a bit longer. Work out a bit harder. It isn’t always easy finding baby gear that fits the bill for both mom and baby. I am thrilled to report that this stroller exceeds in all areas. Most importantly in helping mommas have the freedom they need to get out, work out and be the best for their baby!
