Sports Stroller by Phil and Ted
Recently I was in the market for a jogging stroller, so I tried out a cheap one. I hated it. Joggling strollers are hard to get used to because in order to turn you must lift it up off its front wheel. This is easier to do than with regular strollers, but Andy hated it. I just kept wishing the front wheel would turn. In order to find that feature, you must spend a large sum of money. However, if you think you'll use such a stroller, we recommend Phil and Ted's Sports Stroller. They have a bunch of great features that really impress us. First off, if you think you may have another child, they have a doubles kit so you can convert your stroller into a double and go back to a single as needed. Without this kit, there's still a drop down bassinet for your newborn so you can start using it immediately after your doctor gives you the okay to exercise. There's also an adjustable handle, adjustable restraints on both seats, two pockets, a window in the canopy, a cell phone pouch, locking straps to hold the stroller closed, and more. But what we like is that the front wheel can be swivel or fixed, so you have the choice. If you are walking through the woods on a curvy path, you can set the front wheel to swivel so you don't need to lift the front wheel. Put it to fixed when you are jogging on a bike path. I'm not sure if I'll be buying a jogging stroller, but if I do, this will definitely be the one!

I have the older version of this stroller and LOVE it. It's nice because it folds up pretty small for a double stroller and as most mommies know, space is a premium when you have 2 little ones and you drive a VW Passat. Room for two is only a click away. It also moves very well since the front wheel swivels. I don't think I'd recommend running with a newborn in this this (when the seat is lowered for newborns, it kind of swings) or any stroller, though. Wish I could have the newer version with all of the fancy new additions (like reclining rear seat (if you get the doubles kit)), too but I'm not made of money!
