Default Running better with a stroller???

I started training for my first 5k about a month ago. In that time I changed my shoes because I was heel striking, witch help tremendously - no more shins pain ; I put aside the C25K program and now I go solo, went from jogging 8 minutes to 17 minutes in one week !! But the biggest change I feel is when I started to workout with my son... I feel that I have a better posture when I'm pushing the stroller ??? Does it make sense? Before I felt awkward, and now I feel sooooo comfortable. I'm not complaining trust me, just wondering if any of you find they run/jog better pushing a stroller?? Have not try without it yet, funny but I'm afraid to...

I totally do! The stroller adds momentum or something. I was super bummed when my daughter got too big to ride!
It's OK to be Strong & Pretty! Lift heavy or go home!

Interesting post. I was hesitant to buy one (I need a double) due to posture problems but I guess I was thinking backwards, thanks!!

I run better with a stroller. I have a hard time running without. Plus it holds my water.

This time, it's forever.
