I have a dilemma. While the girls are getting too old for a stroller, I am determined to get more exercise this spring and the only way I can fit it into my schedule is to walk the girls to school. This would give me a good hour long walk (total walk both ways) and for one of those ways, I would be pushing an extra 65 lbs.
The dilemma is that we have just about outgrown our Phil and Ted's double and so we need to purchase a side-by-side jogger to accommodate our growing children. The dilemma is that it is physically hurting me at the thought of spending upwards of $600 for a stroller. I have done some research and feel that the BOB Revolution is our best option. It is sturdy and has gotten rave reviews from the parents I have spoken to. It is, however, $659. This is not a purchase to be made lightly.
I was actually at the store this morning looking at it and the thought of actually spending this much money is tying my stomach into knots. I have been wracking my brain about how I can make our Phil and Ted's work (don't know how I can do this seeing as there is a weight limit and we are a few pounds shy of it). I have been trying to find other exercise options to no avail. I am now trying to convince myself that $659 is well worth having a healthier me.
I think I am going to have to sit with this idea of spending this much for a bit and see if gets any easier to swallow. I think I am partly torn as well because I would rather spend this money on a tablet.
I just wish stroller were less expensive. Oh, and I have been on Kijiji and Craig's List every day with no sign of a BOB for sale yet! I will continue to look but have a feeling that buying a new one is our only option.
