I’m still diligently training for my fun-run at Disney world in two weeks! And, I still haven’t broken the 13 minute mile mark. This is sad. I can “jog” the whole time, but I have no training or ideas on how to push myself to get to that mark. I’m hoping that being in the crowd will be enough of a boost!
One thing that has helped is having a super cute training partner. E just sits and coasts along in the FastAction™ Fold Jogger Click Connect™ Stroller, most of the time, holding onto her crab toy and taking it all in.
FastAction™ Fold Click Connect™ Jogger Features
In the picture above, E has the convertible 3 or 5-point harness just using the 3-point harness setting. But, when we are actually out strolling, she gets the 5-point.
The parent console is awesome. I’ve never had a stroller that had one. It’s nice that it can hold two drinks and the wells are deep enough that my cup and water bottles don’t fall out. It also has a spot that holds my iPhone 4S (in a case) in either direction so E and I can jam to music while we are out. And, the phone locks in, so if I forget to take it out when I fold it, it’s still there.
The basket is most generously sized. It is holding a full-to-the-brim adult sized backpack and a lunch bag with room to spare. You can also see the multi-position reclining seat. It’s very easy to adjust up and down as needed. See that little handle looking thing? That’s actually what holds the stroller together in it’s folded position (which stands on it’s own). Also, it makes a great handle for a little 4 year old that might be walking with you. They get to hold onto it and feel like it was made just for them (yes, this is from experience).
Having never owned a jogging stroller, this took me a second to figure out, but it has a tether I can wear around my wrist, so should I fall or trip, E and the stroller won’t go on without me.
Here’s a front and back view for comparison. You can also see the removable tray for the child as well with two cup holders and a section in the middle.
I drive an Odyssey. Apparently an older one because the back seat doesn’t split fold. And, we need somebody sitting in the back. So, when I put the stroller in the back of the van, it takes up most of the back. It’s a pretty big stroller. Having said that, I’m not sure there are joggers that fold up any smaller or take up less car space. It was pretty easy to pick up and get in there by myself, so it’s not too heavy.
All of the awesome bloggers and most of their kiddos (some where at school). It’s kind of funny to see 13 women with the same stroller all lined up! It was definitely a fun, informative event and nice to get together with other moms.
It has a single step fold (which, admittedly was hard to use. I still have issues with it working every time. Either the kickstand or the wheel gets in the way. This seemed to be a common statement amongst the moms). It’s nice that it automatically locks and is self-standing when folded unlike another stroller I have that must be balanced perfectly to stand.
The tires are large air-filled rubber tires that allow for a smooth ride on many surfaces. However, I personally wouldn’t recommend a very bumpy, wooded path. It’s not quite made for that.
Graco’s NEW jogger is the ultimate crossover stroller, combining all the comfort and convenience features of a traditional stroller (FastAction Fold and Click Connect Technology) with performance and maneuverability of an all-terrain jogger.
