If I had it to do over, I wouldn't buy one. The additional mass was no problem but the steering was annoying: You have to keep a hand on it at all times. Even on a seemingly straight path, you have to make steering corrections frequently so you have to think about it frequently. I used mine two or three times. Never used it again.

I did a lot more cycling during that time. I found cycle-strollers so much more pleasant than jog-strollers.

On the positive side, you should be able to find jog/cycle strollers for very little money since they don't get used for long and people get rid of them with very little wear and tear.

Hi
I am now back into a regular jogging routine after the birth of my baby, who will soon be 6 months old.
What I am wondering if whether it is worth buying a jogging stroller. Do people use them a lot - enough to justify the hefty price tag?
I am thinking of using it for my shorter runs during the week, which I currently do really late at night when my husband is home and I can get out. But we live in. Windy and rainy country and Summer is not all that long - do people go out in any weather with them?
I miss being able to go out for a run at convenient times, which is why the jogging stroller is appealing, but was just wondering what other half marathon runners have found.
