Baby Registry Cheat Sheet – Emily Nolan

Emily Nolan Baby Registry Cheat Sheet
“I started my baby registry journey by admitting to my closest girlfriends that I had no idea where to begin. There are so many products available on the market and so many opinions. I’ve done a ton of asking around, and a bunch of my own research, and I’ve come up with the top things to register for on a baby registry. I hope this helps you discover your own perfect registry!” -Emily

Stroller Running and the Bumbleride Speed – Run She Is Beautiful Blog

 


{Excerpt from Run She Is Beautiful Blog by Paula of @fitfam6}

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 (tried 7), either because I own quite a few (ummmm my husband Dave thinks I have a stroller hoarding problem. Embarrassingly, I have 5. 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 Bugaboo stroller seat less than a year ago because of said behaviors.  For a 25lb-ish 5 year old he seems to have Herculean type strength.

It has taken me nearly 3 years to find the perfect blend of strollers.  Lots of trial and error, paying attention to how Asher responded to each stroller and most importantly how my body responded to each stroller.  No two running strollers are made the same.  Bumbleride is now my stroller of choice, but about 3 years ago I thought I found the stroller of my dreams and at that time, it was the perfect stroller. Asher went from hating everything about being in any stroller to loving it with the Bugaboo Runner. It got me through 3 training cycles great until Asher simply was too big.  The max capacity for the Runner is only 37.5 pounds. Asher is far from that, but he simply got too big. It was awkward for him and there really are no pockets or ways to attach snacks for him. I then moved on to two strollers of varying popularity: Thule Urban Glide stroller and Bob Flex stroller…” READ MORE.

“Oh and one last “Hey you should really try this stroller” argument, I ran a local race this past weekend. Last minute sign up read that as 10 minutes before it started I registered. What was suppose to be an easy run day with Asher in the Bumbleride turned into me trying to see what I could do with the stroller racing. My first race with the Bumbleride did not disappoint. I finished top 10, first female OA, first stroller (there were a lot surprisingly) and first in AG. I consider that pretty awesome for my first Bumbleride Stroller race and think it should be convincing enough in itself to let others know Bumbleride is awesome!

Review Of The Month – “The perfect always on the go stroller”

Write a Review & WIN! – Review Of The Month

  The perfect always on the go stroller!

It has been two years since we received our Indie and it is probably my favorite purchase for our family. It is one of the smoothest rides when it comes to any terrain (I’ve tested so many different strollers from friends), quick and easy to fold and put in the car, lightweight, extremely easy maneuverability, and beautiful to look at. The indie has kept up with my husbands long runs, roller skating on a crowded boardwalk, beach walks, walking trails, and city streets. Not to mention countless airports… Not only is the stroller itself wonderful, the company is too. Finding out they were a smaller San Diego based company was quite a nice surprise. The customer service is exceptional (thanks Kandi!!) and always quick to respond. It was only natural for my first purchase for our second baby on the way to be the Indie Twin. … I didn’t mean for this to get so long but I can’t say enough about how awesome the Indie is! It’s worth the cost and pays for itself if you’re planning on using a stroller constantly, no matter what the terrain. Thanks Bumbleride!” – Kim

Improve How You Move : Running Stroller Form

Calling all stroller runners and walkers who want to avoid injuries and get stronger!  Sara, Assistant Race Director of Run She Is Beautiful 5 & 10k is also a Doctor of Physical Therapy with some really great knowledge that she would like to share with you about staying healthy while running with a stroller. We are proud to offer one of the only stroller division races in the country, with our Bumbleride Baby Mama Division and can’t wait to see you out there running with your kids.

Running while pushing little ones is different for every person.  Many of us had idyllic visions of cruising effortlessly through beautiful scenery while our child cheered us on. We were soon hit with the hard reality that a stroller and the weight of that beautiful child was harder than it looks!  Beyond that, while the cheers of “Go Mama or Dada” can be heard occasionally, keeping said child entertained with endless rounds of “Itsy, Bitsy, Spider” and a constant commentary of all the vehicles you see driving by raised your heart rate to new levels, while your pace still slowed.  Finally, many people who are picking up stroller running are new moms who have just put their bodies through the rigors of pregnancy and birth.  They might have additional areas of weakness caused by these things AND are likely still under the control of hormones that make their tissues more flexible and possibly more prone to injury (these hormones have been shown to remain active in the body until 3-6 months AFTER you stop breastfeeding).

With that said, for many parents, a stroller run is the only way for them to get a run in or a time they truly enjoy spending with their child.

Today, we would like to bring you some tips to improve your stroller running form, both to prevent injuries AND improve efficiency….Read More.

2018 Bumbleride Indie Review – Mom’s Stroller Reviews

Susan Brian of Mom’s Stroller Reviews has been a longtime Bumbleride owner and has reviewed many strollers (she’s an expert!). Below is an excerpt from her 2018 Bumbleride Indie All Terrain Stroller review. Thank you for your detailed review Susan!

2018 Bumbleride Indie Review by Mom's Stroller Reviews

The Bumbleride Indie 2018 is a 4th generation jogger with some minor improvements. It’s designed for active parents who enjoy light jogging and want an everyday stroller with the off-road ability with LUXURY features.

Indie is perfect for moms like me, who is not a serious jogger, but still wants to go for a jog once in a while. Since I am a huge Indie fan and thought the previous model was almost perfect, I was excited to see what improvements Bumbleride came up with.

For 2018 they only had 3 updates:

1) It has an updated UPF 45+ canopy that now sits higher on the frame and can accommodate a taller child. It still offers the same great coverage.

2) The second update made the fold a little easier with redesigned release triggers.

3) New storage pockets in the back of the seat where you can put your water bottle or other small essentials.

And of course they’ve added new colors. The new eco-friendly fabrics are made out of 100% recycled PET materials. Also, no harmful chemicals were used in the process.

Despite the upgrades, Indie 2018 still weighs only 24 lbs and can accommodate a child from birth and up to 55 lbs. It can also turn into a travel system with most popular car seats

It rolls on large air-filled tires that glide through any terrain. This is a great jogging stroller that you can take off road. Easy to pushed even with one hand. Some other features that parents enjoy are: adjustable leg rest, adjustable handle bar, large basket, mesh window in the seat, plenty of storage, adjustable 5-point harness, and run away strap.

I gave the new Indie 5 out of 5 stars since I really like the new updates and think that this is an outstanding jogger, one of the best on the market. It retailing for around $549 and comes with an air-pump and a bumper bar…
