I have the baby trend jogger and am very happy with it. It was our only stroller for Drew (now we added a sit and stand since we've got two kiddos). We used that stroller for everything. You do have to lock the front wheel when you're running or it will start to wobble. That means you can't turn quite as sharply, but who needs to make sharp turns when they are running anyway? Not me!
Honestly, I don't think it makes a big difference that you're a beginner (in terms of which stroller to get). The only thing to consider is to possibly look for a somewhat lighter stroller. The bulkier and heavier ones (like the Jeep one my friend has) are harder to push. Ultimately, the heavier one gives you a better workout, but it's enough of a work out just to start running - I don't think you need the extra challenge of a super heavy stroller.
virginiagirl11:I have a BOB. You can't jog with it until LO is 6 months so for now I just use it like a normal stroller with the infant adaptor bar. It's an awesome stroller, though.

My pedi was OK with us running together after 2 months, as long as he had good head control in the stroller.
I couldn't justify the expense of the BOB and after reading countless reviews, I got the InStep Grand Safari. I figured if I found that we used it a lot, I could splurge for a pricier one. It is light weight, has a swivel/lock, a mini mp3 speaker, and it reclines pretty far back. I added a boppy head positioner to it because I was still nervous about DS's head control.
So far, it has been great and he seems to like it.
I have the Baby Trend Expedition and love it! It was a pretty good price for the stroller-car seat combo. As PP said, I have to wait a little bit to actually jog with it, but it's been great on walks.
Some good resources for running: mapmyrun.com and runnersworld.com. Good luck! :)
