The Kelty Speedster Swivel Deluxe gets mostly positive reviews. It retails for between $300 to $400, well above my $200 cap, but my coworker, an avid runner and cyclist, sold me his for $50. He says his daughter is too heavy to push up hills now, and he wanted to clear out some space, no doubt to make room for more child-related accessories. WHY DO THEY NEED SO MUCH STUFF?
He also tried to pass off a bunch of other crap that he didn't feel like taking to Goodwill, but I put the kibosh on that shit. Nice offer, but we already had trouble filling up our registry for the baby shower next month. Besides, don't tell me that baby bath didn't have poop and pee on it at some point. Babies are terrible about holding in their bodily excretions. Do. Not. Want.
So, now that we have the running stroller, what the hell do I do with it? Running parents, I need you to answer my questions:
- When can I start running with the baby?
- How long can I reasonably run?
- What do I need to take with me?
- How do I avoid being that asshole with the running stroller who's in your way?
- How do I become that asshole with the running stroller who's passing you?
These things I must know! Any other helpful hints are welcome too.
That's enough for today. It's been a long and arduous week. Let's get to the weekend.
Happy Hour is nearly upon us, teammates! Run well and drink well. Cheers!
