To say that parenthood is the end – or hiatus point – of all other life activities would be a gross misrepresentation of the truth. We live in a day and age where technology and innovative inventions allow parents to continue enjoying the things they love to do without compromising on the quality of parenting.

One such example is that of running strollers that have taken the baby product market by storm. Their signature three wheel design ensures easy control and maneuverability whether you are running, jogging or power walking with your little one.

Below are 10 of the best models currently on the market.
