    This is SO helpful and timely! I am just in the process of registering and am most excited about a jogging stroller although I had nowhere to start. This is perfect. I think the BOB sounds perfect!

      Perfect Josie! You’ll love the BOB. I don’t know what I’d do without it!

    So even a grandma who doesn’t run can use it because the wheel locks?

    1. Mallory says July 23, 2013

      That’s the beauty with all three of these options Jill. The front wheel can be locked for running (or even walking on rough terrain) or left as a swivel wheel for getting around tighter spots. Great if you only want one stroller!

    We live with our BOB Ironman. It is perfect for short runs, long runs, sprints, trips to the grocery store (the huge basket is awesome for holding food instead of driving to the store), wandering out the street markets, and all of the trails we run and hike on.

    We took it recently to Moab to explore Arches and Canyonlands National Parks and Dead Horse Point State Park. Our good man BOB handled the Devils Garden trails and those near the Three Gossips wonderfully. It lives with us when we swim (open water training or just play) at our local reservoir (Pineview)!

    My safety loving triathlete hub did a full inspection before testing it out, specifically the tires. Even with 6 ish months of wear on some very tough terrain, the tires are in fabulous shape and we’ve yet to blow a tube.

    We saved precious $ on it by using our REI rebate along with our REI members coupon this year. While Scott was initially skeptical about the cost, he comments nearly every day about what a great purchase it was. Given that it will last us 5 or so years, it’s a cheap investment.

    We just wish they made them big enough so our daughter could push us in one…especially after a long training and racing day!

      Haha, Wendy! I hear you. I think Harry will need to figure out a way to push us around in five years. The BOB Ironman seems to be a fabulous fit for a serious runner, and anyone who is going to be doing a lot of outdoor activity on different types of terrain. I’m curious, do you have a second stroller you use in non-active scenarios or do you find the BOB Ironman does the job?

    Mallory, we caved recently (less than 1 week ago) and bought a Babies R Us umbrella stroller. It tortured us (momentarily) to be “those parents” who have more than 1 stroller, but we became them.

    We’re moving in under a month and while the BOB would meet all of our needs in the new spot, the new stroller allows us a bit more flexibility (say for a walk around the neighborhood- or island where we’re moving).

    Plus we’ll probably have a second child in the near future (within a year or a bit more) so having 2 strollers is a good thing.

    1. Mallory says July 23, 2013

      It’s never a bad thing to have two strollers! Now you’ve got one that will be easier to use while shopping or traveling, and like you said, not a bad thing when you’ve got a second little one one day. Thanks Wendy!
