Running Stroller

I have an interesting topic possibly for your blog:  What are some of the good running strollers?  With Father's Day around the corner and my wife pestering me about what I want, I have decided I would like a running stroller so my kid can "run" with me this summer.  I have gone to different sites and gotten opinions from the casual public, but I would like to know what some of my coaching colleagues/running community think or if they have any recommendations.

No question, BOB all the way.

If you are taking it running you want to get the one that has the wheel locked in (like bike forks). My friend has the one with the wheel that swivels but it constantly gets out of line and he has to adjust it. With mine it is great for roads and trails. I have run road 5ks up to 18 mile long runs on single track trails (don't tell my wife though).

BOB also sells things like a weather shield for wind or the chance of rain. I can move pretty well with too and have run some 18 min 5ks, which isn't too far off the kind of shape I was in.

Feel free to email me if you want to know more. I have been running with my son since he was 6 months old and was the best thing a runner Dad could ever own!
