Bumbleride Speed Review – @RunningRoundy

View this post on Instagram

@bumbleride has so generously provided their Speed jogging stroller, bassinet, and accessories in exchange for my honest review of their amazing products. I’m excited to let you know all about it! There are so many impressive aspects and features that make Bumbleride unique and the best choice in my opinion. . . They’re a company that is like-minded with outdoor companies such as Patagonia, the North Face, and others who strive to preserve the planet. Some ways they’re doing so is by making eco friendly fabrics from recycled plastic bottles and using dye processes that conserve water. . I like their straightforward, common sense design. It’s by far the best on the market in my opinion. Their clean, purpose-built design is the perfect balance between functionality and style. It’s the most aesthetically pleasing. The steering is engineered for easy strolling and turning. And the front wheel can be locked for your faster tempo runs. Other features that impress me are the adjustable handlebar and how incredibly compact it becomes once it’s folded. And it’s never been easier to fold a stroller, let alone a jogger! My husband was also very impressed by this. He thinks it’s better than any stroller we’ve used, and more compact than the smaller ones we’ve owned. He likes that it’s a stroller that can be your “one and only.” The assembly was very easy and simple. There’s nothing unnecessary in the sophisticated design. . Let me tell you about the bassinet. I’m in love with this accessory! Baby is so comfortable laying down inside. You can attach it with or without the seat fabric (I left mine in, placing the bassinet on top). They also have the option of a seat adapter that allows you to use your own infant carrier brand including Maxi Cosi, Cybex, Nuna, Peg Perego, Graco or Chicco. The bassinet is my favorite accessory. . I did my research on jogging strollers including the BOB and Thule brands, and nothing topped Bumbleride. This high-end stroller is sold all over the world and by fine retailers such as Pottery Barn Kids, as well as on their website bumbleride.com . #bumblerideadventures #bumbleride #postpartumtraining

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.
