Living in Manhattan with children, you can't go out without a stroller. Now that we primarily drive everywhere, our strollers are mostly used for more rigorous activities. I quickly learned the performance jogger is to the suburbs what the lightweight umbrella stroller is to the city.

Since Leo commutes into the city, the kids don't get to see him much during the work week and weekends are designated family time. One of our favorite activities is running at a local state park. Its scenic three mile running/biking path has views of an equestrian center (and its residents), the Long Island Sound, and tons of wildlife. I love running with the kids and showing them how fun and seamlessly exercise fits into our lifestyle.

When you're pushing a stroller across varied terrain, nothing compares to the smooth ride of a jogging stroller. Its large, air-filled rubber tires, locking front-swivel wheels, premium suspension, and lightweight frames are ideal for curbs, pot holes, changes in elevation and conditions (grass, gravel, sand, etc). We've been happily using the brand new Graco Relay Click Connect Performance Jogger available at Toys R Us and Babies R Us.

Two things set the Relay Click Connect Performance apart from other joggers: (1) the stroller is compatible with all Graco Click Connect infant car seats in one secure step, accommodating children from infant to toddler and (2) it's the only jogger on the market that comes with all of its accessories (cup holder, zippered storage & phone pocket). It also has a generous storage basket underneath, which is roomier than my experience with other joggers.

In addition to standard jogger features, Graco Relay Click Connect Performancehas reflective, tech-fabric to help keep you visible in low light and a large all-weather UV50 canopy for baby's sun protection. It folds with one hand instantly.

The Relay Click Connect is almost 28 pounds, which is more than a pound heavier the F.I.T. Jogger, BOB Revolution Flex, Se, and Strides Fitness, but slightly less than BOB Revolution Pro. I have a F.I.T. and don't notice the small weight difference but it is a consideration. They both feel pretty heavy but I'm only lifting them in and out of the car as opposed to up and down stairs in the city. The other difference I noticed is that the Relay Click Connect does not have a hand break, which means less control if you are running hills.

My little guy is out of the infant car seat so I don't have experience with the car seat connection but it's supposed to be a one-snap like the Snap N Go, which I have used and loved for its convenience.

Our experience with the Relay Click Connect has been completely positive and I think it's a no brainer if you're expecting or have a baby still in an infant car seat. The quick connect makes for a comfortable and affordable travel system. The price ($299.99) is in line with the F.I.T. (but you don't have to buy accessories, not to mention the car seat connectivity) and less than BOB's offerings. Definitely worth a test-drive!
