Running buggy recommendations?

As a soon to be Mum, I'm trying to look into buggies/prams that I'll be able to run with once baby has arrived (after suitable recovery time and easing back into it of course!)

I'm sure some of you are running parents and could recommend something? I don't want to have to get two buggies so I'd like one that's suitable for running but also practical for everyday use.

I can't really help with this as I've not managed to take mine out for a run yet. It is a quinny stroller, big wheels, extendable handle and seems like it will be ok. I'd suggest going for something with a v shape underneath and no back axle so you don't kick it while you run- because mine is not like that and That is the only thing that concerns me. Also as a dad of a nearly 4 month old, I suggest you get plenty if sleep in the tank now because the first 4-6 months are hellish. Good luck

Thanks Flob! Trying to get as much sleep and rest as I can now but baby already seems to like waking me up at 4am!

It's every 3 hours for the first 3 months so it is a huge shock to the system! It does pass quickly though, I think, but not sure as I'm so tired!

Whatever buggy you get (I personally had a babyjogger) the recommendation is that baby needs to have neck control before you go running, about 4-6 months ish.
