I'm looking at jogging strollers and would love some recommendations from people who have one. Or rants about them as well.
I know I want one that can switch between locked and swivel wheel so we can use it both for running and for every day. DH would like one he could trail run with, but it's not a must and IDK how often he'd trail run with the baby anyway. I don't run now, but am planning to start up C25K again.
I have a Bob Revolution and my only problem with it is that the seat is reclined even when it's as upright as possible. I would consider the Thule Urban Glide if I was looking for one now and wasn't overly concerned about budget. Where will you be using it for your "everyday" use? Most jogging strollers are big and may not be great for shopping, but an inexpensive umbrella stroller may help for those situations. TBH I don't use my umbrella stroller much; my Bob and my Mamas and Papas Armadillo Flip get the most miles.
Bob Revolution all the way. We LOVE ours and used it as our everyday stroller and skipped the "travel system" all around. We also have a 2nd hand MacLaren umbrella stroller we use that fully reclines for those outings where a lighter stroller is needed.
Tip for Dreaming- my neighbor just showed me with their Bob- take the red clip straps that are supposed to secure in the infant carrier and buckle them behind the seat and cinch as tight as possible. This raises the seat a good few inches!

We'd be using it for shopping and walking around. We have a 5 week vacation coming up that I'd like to only take one stroller on and I know DH would like to go running with the baby during it. We have a small apartment and at the end of the year I'm selling my current travel system to my friend.

BOB all the way for jogging and trails. However it is huge and I don't like to take it places because it doesn't fold that flat and takes up a whole trunk when folded. I have never taken it shopping but I think it would be awful in a store because of the size
My budget isn't going to support the BOB, and I'm not a heavy jogger. But I want something that has big tires to deal with gravel/rock/grass and the occasional run. Any thoughts on the graco fast action jogger?
