We're teetering on the edge of buying another stroller - a jogging stroller. For all I laugh at people who spend $800 on strollers, I can see the joy of being really happy with a stroller that is classy and utilitarian all at once. Let's see if we ever struck that magic balance with any of the strollers we've owned.
TOO BAD IT GOT STOLEN IN EGYPT LAST SUMMER. Just sayin'.
Which brings me to the dilemma: should we buy a single jogging stroller? Believe it or not, we have taken Magdalena running in the Egyptian umbrella stroller a couple of times but it is a truly heinous experience. Mostly I cope by making Jeremy push. Jogging strollers pop up on dubizzle (craigslist for the Middle East) often enough that I'm sure we'd score a cheap one eventually.
I think writing this post has convinced me to go for it, though my frugal nature begs me to wait for equal funds to be freed up when our double jogger/bike trailer back in Ithaca sells. However, if I send my frugal nature for ONE jog with that terrible abomination of a neon green umbrella stroller, I'm sure it will reconsider.
