I have five cute kids. And I have some rockin short green racing shorts- I wear them mainly because it embarrasses my wife so much. I like ultimate frisbee, trail running, reading, and cheering for the Denver Broncos!   And I have the absolute best wife in the world.  And I used to run for the now-disbanded national Team Pearl Izumi- Ultra!

PM- 6 easy, 2xPW with both kids in the jogger.  I'm gonna take Paul's idea and track stroller miles- I'm curious how many miles I do with it this year.

The 768's are officially retired.  They were good, good shoes and will be missed.

Can you go back and figure out how many jogger miles you already have to add in?

I bought the double jogger late last year, so I can easily include those miles. For the single jogger, we have had it for 2.5 years and I have worn out the tires- I don't plan to add those miles up.

From Adam RW on Sat, Apr 11, 2009 at 15:37:13 from

I meant more for just the year.

Impressive that you've worn through a pair of tires. I just had two flats but not because the treads are gone, just because of some very large and nasty thorns.

From Jon on Sat, Apr 11, 2009 at 20:15:39 from

Those miles above are all the miles for the year- I don't take my kids out unless it is ~55 deg or warmer, and, being Cache Valley, we have only had a few days.

I put slime in my tires almost immediately after buying them- one day with 7 thorns convinced me of that.

I thought I was the only one that had blown out jogger tires with thorns... I never thought of the slime idea, but they probably didn't have it back then, along with flush toilets and indoor plumbing.

Know anyone who wants to buy a nice second hand Burley trailer/jogger sitting in my shed?
