Trek Firefly Jogger

So, what I am wondering now many miles do I have to run before my trusty ol' Kelty single jogger needs to be replaced because I JUST learned that TREK makes a jogging stroller too! We have 7 TREK bikes and I would LOVE to try the Trek stroller.

I'm thinking that this stroller looks awesome. First, Trek bikes are really well made. I love the center handlebar idea. The seat and canopy look really well supported.

I expect that I have 2 more years of stroller running (training for 100+ combined miles of races) plus even after 8 years of adjustments, there is nothing I can do to make my Kelty track in a straight line! What other justifications can I think of to buy this stroller ?!?!

I don't need much support so I can run in this bra. It would not be enough support for a larger breasted woman to run. It is so soft and comfortable that I can also wear it for a long run or for all day. I think I need to buy more...

These shorts fit perfectly and are so soft. They are fairly short which I like. I sometimes find that the liner of running shorts can be too baggy in the butt area, but these fit well. The heavier fabric stays down better than the really lightweight fabrics of some shorts which is always blowing around this way and that. Great for casual runs. I also love the "Eat my Dust" when I'm feeling a little saucy!

Tire Pressure

Check your tire pressure. Really, you can probably just assume that you need more. In rare cases, overinflating your innertube can cause the tire to pop out of the rim, but I've only seen that happen once. Just like your car, firm tires make a big difference in how much energy you use to move forward.

Most jogging stroller tires will be in the range of 40 psi (pounds pre square inch). Read the tiny numbers on the sidewall of your tire to see the recommendation for your tires. A bike pump with a gauge is the best thing to use. Though a compressor like the ones at a gas station are compatible with the schrader valve that is in your stroller tire, they are better used for car tires that require a much larger volume of air.

While you are at it, your kids' bicycles probably air in their tires too...
