Hey Mama (or Dad), are you looking for an affordable double jogging stroller??
I was looking for one too and fell in love with this double jogging stroller! I needed something big enough for my 3yrs & 8mth old, but not too bulky that it would be hard to push around (or couldn't fit into doorways). I wanted to stay under $200 too! I also wanted something that was light weight and easy to run with and that would fit into the trunk of my minvan. I know right, I was looking for something just right! LOL

Strangely enough, I couldn't find many (basically zero) double joggers in stores! They were all sold online. Well, you know what that means....Amazon Prime, here I come!! (I freaking love Amazon Prime, but my wallet doesn't).
But, let me back up a little bit and tell you why I decided to get a Double Jogger even though I already have a double stroller. My husband and I signed up for a Mudrun 5k!! This has been on my bucket list for years and I'm so excited to finally be doing one in a few months! (I'll write another blog post about the Mudrun later lol). So, we signed up for the race about 12 weeks before it starts...plenty of time to train for one! I'm not a big fan of running, but an obstacle course run I'm excited for. The first 2 weeks of training are going good. I was finding time when my husband got home from work to go for runs and got my workouts in. Unfortunately my husband has to travel a lot for work, like every week he's out of town :( So now that it was his busy season with work and he's out of town, I can't go for a run with all 4 kids by myself. Hence this is why I needed to get a double jogger. I started looking online and found a few that I like but they are a bit out of my price range and I didn't want to pay for shipping. Amazon Prime to the rescue!!! Another thing about me, I'm not a very patient person...I want it done right away! So having the two day shipping is even better.
Two days later the stroller shows up on my front porch!! I did have to assemble the stroller but honestly it was only a few pieces. I had to put the wheels on and the foot tray/plate. A couple screws later and the stroller was all set to go!
Seriously the best purchase ever!!! I actually enjoy running with the kids and it's easy to maneuver!
Both kids have plenty of room and there are little pockets in their seats for their water bottles or toys or a snack. The seat belt can have shoulder straps or just a lap belt. The umbrella cover can easily move to cover them (forward and back). Each seat can adjust to be in a laying down position (perfect for when the baby is napping.)
More amazing Stroller features:
- 2 storage pockets behind seats
- 2 underneath storages
- front wheel locks in place for jogging
- 2 brakes for back wheels
- wheels are bike tire (easy to reinflate)
- 2 cup holders
- jogging strap
- easy to fold up and store
- speaker hookup for phone (I love it!!)
