It seems just like yesterday that everyone was gearing up for the new year and we were making our new years resolutions. Until I heard the first mention of resolutions I hadn’t really given much thought to what mine were going to be for the year and so, I sat down to compile a list of things that I’d be making into my new years resolutions for 2016. Now, almost 7 months into the new year, I’m happy to say that I managed to fashion a list of resolutions that I’ve been doing quite well at sticking with.
Number one on my list, of course, was being more active. Every year this resolution seems to find itself on my list and every year I haven’t quite managed to stick with it but I was determined this year. So far, it’s been going pretty well, if I do say so myself. Of course, I don’t think I’d be doing half as well if it weren’t for the Solstice Jogging Stroller by Burly. I’ve always loved jogging, even as infrequently as I do but when our family started to expand I often had to rely on my husband to watch the little ones for me so I could get the exercise I needed. Now, I can load up my youngest in the Solstice jogging stroller while the older kids are at school and we can take a few laps around our neighborhood together without having to worry about who’d be home to watch the older kids.
The Solstice Jogging Stroller is everything I need in a jogging stroller and more. It’s the perfect combination of both style and functionality, so not only is it easy to set up but it’s also quite pretty to look at too, as far as strollers go. One of the highlights, in my opinion, is that it’s incredibly easy to put away thanks to the one-hand feature that allows you to fold the stroller up with just one hand. I’ve had a few strollers in the past that have been such a hassle to fold up, I’ve even had to get an extra pair of hands for one so this one-hand touch feature has been especially nifty after and between uses. I’ve definitely enjoying testing this one out!
I don’t have many specific needs when it comes to strollers but when I first started using the Solstice, I was pleasantly surprised by all of the features that I discovered. I’m excited to be able to share them with my readers because I know there are a lot of mama’s and dad’s out there who who like the extra features that strollers come with. From cup holders, to mesh overhangs to keep the sun out, there are a ton of features of traditional strollers that everyone likes to see include. While a jogging stroller is used for a much different purpose than leisurely exploring or hefting around the little ones, it has its own features that can be enjoyed.
The features include but aren’t limited to:
- The autolocking mechanism that aids in the one handed folding feature also allows the stroller to be folded and locked all in one motion. Wheels keep the strolled off the ground when folded so you can roll the stroller instead of having to lug the stroller around.
- Padded Spring Integrated Technology Seat prevents tangled straps and simplifies getting your little one in and out of the stroller. This is another feature that I love about this particular stroller. The straps of my old one would always get tangled and it was so frustrating.
- Seatback can be adjusted with one hand. The single centered adjustment strap ensures a level of recline that best suits the needs of your little one.
- Extendable padded handlebars. This makes it easier for parents of all heights to use the stroller without straining or being uncomfortable.
- Coil Spring Suspension system that provides a smooth ride.
