Allow me to tag Runs as 'with baby jogger'
NB if you do want this feature added, please click the "upvote" so that the people at Strava will be able to judge its relevance!
So, I recently started using Strava.
These days, my time to run coincides with the time that I take care of Tisa, our 10-month old daughter. Luckily, ever since we have purchased a jogging stroller these two things are possible to combine. To a certain extent at least.
While I really enjoy running with the 'jogger', it is not exactly the same as running. Of course. You're pushing a stroller, you can't really use your arms, or run at full stride. Likewise, running with a jogger makes you less 'agile', so crossing streets, or moving onto and off the sidewalks causes your speed to drop to zero. And I may be working my butt off pushing the jogger up even a slight hill, but still I will not be able to match the speed of the person who just started running last month. Naturally, this is reflected in speed, and therefore, my ego starts to complain.
I think adding 'run with baby jogger' as an activity on Strava could be welcome for people like me. For three reasons (from least to most important):
- it will do some justification as to why my splits are twice as slow as they used to be.
- it will allow me to compare my times against other 'baby joggers', somewhat like the age groups.
- it will let me explore where other 'baby joggers' go for their workouts, allowing me to discover new routes that are baby-jogger-friendly.
I realize the demand for this feature could be very small. But who knows, perhaps you have already received more of these requests. And I could imagine it would be relatively easy to incorporate into the Strava platform.
With kind regards, Maarten
