Tomorrow is our J is for Jeep Twitter Fitness Party. We are super excited because we will be talking about a subject we love – fitness and Jeep! We are excited to share our new Jeep jogging stroller with you and are THRILLED to announce that Derek Kite will be tweeting with us. Derek is a dad of three, married to the illustrious Valerie from the blog A Nation of Moms, and has extensive knowledge of fitness – you know all the tips on how to work in fitness as a family, how to stay fit even on a busy schedule, etc.

A little about Derek:

Derek is a former professional triathlete, duathlete, and runner. Derek brings to the sport of triathlon/duathlon his expertise and experience in running, having trained with some of the world’s fastest Kenyan and American runners.  He was named Rookie Duathlete of the Year (2003), finished 3rd in the nation in triathlon and 6th in the world in duathlon and has several other podiums under his belt, including two consecutive wins at the Malibu Triathlon.

As a professional runner, he competed in the 1996 and 2000 Olympic Trials in the steeplechase and was coached by world-famous coach, Joe Vigil, with former training partners Deena Kastor, Meb Keflizighi, and Dan Browne.

Derek attended and competed for Lubbock Christian University, where he ran and trained with Kenyan teammates.  He earned 14 All-American honors in running and 5 National Team Championships.  By his senior year, he was 4th in Cross Country National Championships, the Indoor 3-mile National Champion, and the Outdoor 3,000-meter Steeplechase National Champion.

Even as a young athlete, Derek has always been a coach at heart. And with over 17 years of coaching experience and 13 years of professional racing, he has a keen understanding of the many needs of the endurance athlete. Derek can attribute his very eclectic coaching style to training under about 20 different coaches with different training philosophies.

Impressive isn’t it? We are just super excited! You can follow him at @anationofmoms

    What a great party and stroller!

  9. karen August 8, 2012 at 11:48 am #

    This is an awesome party. Do the jogging strollers actually help? I have wondered that many times, the regular strollers seem a little clumsy. I would love to hear some feedback from someone who actually uses one.

  10. Andrea C August 8, 2012 at 11:54 am #

    I’ve loved Jeep’s products for kids and babies! The twitter party sounds fun 🙂

  11. Jenny Sims August 8, 2012 at 8:24 pm #

    karen, I don’t own a jogging stroller, but have used one before and I can tell you for sure that jogging strollers do work/help! The ability to fix the front wheel, plus the air-filled tires and suspension make the ride smooth and safer for babies. Honestly, a jogging stroller is the only thing I feel I missed out on for baby #1 that I want the second time around!

  12. Gaitha August 9, 2012 at 8:38 am #

    Love my double jogging stroller, but my oldest is getting to big for it, and I sure would love this great single jeep one!!

  13. Laura Y August 9, 2012 at 9:25 am #

    Fitness and Jeep go together wonderfully! My husband does all sorts of running activities- marathons, half marathons, triathlons and this stroller sounds like it would be great to fit our needs!

  14. Jess August 9, 2012 at 9:59 am #

    I can’t wait to get my hands on one of these! Exciting! 😉

  15. Jennifer Garnick August 9, 2012 at 5:26 pm #

  16. Katie T. August 9, 2012 at 5:34 pm #

    I hope I can get one of these. I’m having back surgery next week and this will help me with walking and, eventually, running.

  17. Wendy Sanders August 9, 2012 at 5:41 pm #

    What a wonderful idea.. Not only good-looking, but functionally, Fun and not a single detail left out. Awesom; not sure the price but it certainly appears as though it’s worth every penny!! Suburbancouponmom.com sent me:))

  40. nina the mom August 14, 2012 at 4:05 pm #

    WOW! What a fun giveaway! I have a Jeep jogging stroller. (Not this particular one.) I love it. Now that we’re expecting baby #2 we’re going to need another stroller, or a double stroller. If I won this, it’d be a sign that I don’t have to get a double stroller, right? 🙂
