Linda, you must be very pleased; your innocuous question has led to
quite a ruckus. I responded with the sarcastic post because I thought
(with all respect) that the question was ridiculous. How would anybody
here (or anywhere) know how many calories you're going to burn running
behind a stroller? Moreover, what the hell difference does it make? A
few years ago, a woman posted a message here saying someone had
advised her to do hillwork by running up a 1/4-mile hill with a 10%
grade. She wanted to know how and where to find such a hill. I told
her for Christ's sake just go find a big steep hill and run up the
damn thing. If you're going to be obsessively anal about running,
you're not going to find much empathy in rec.running.

np426z:

Malicious or teasing, who cares? you are a self-righteous, preachy loser to just randomly attack someone with a totally reasonable question. I stumbled on this site because I googled "calories burned with a double stroller," and you ****** me off sufficiently enough to make me join just to reply to you. Don't bother responding, because I'm going to deactivate my account immediately. If you want to be a f*#! to other people for fun, go join the Texans on Viper Alley.

Well I am super experienced runner,and only a cross training cyclist,and I have a 3 year old that I push in the stroller.That being said,I always read that you burn approx 100-150 calories per mile,period.Whether its a 6min mile,or a ten minute mile.So its the time it takes,not necessarily how fast...or at least thats what I go by.

You know, if you don't know the answer, you don't have to feel stupid about it and make yourself better by trying to make the person feel stupid who asked the question you have no idea how to answer. Shame on all of you who wrote, "WHO CARES?!" or something along those lines! Apparently the person asking the question cares, THAT'S WHO! THANK YOU SO MUCH to ALL of you who actually TRIED to answer the question. To the person who asked the question, I am SO PROUD SOMEONE came on here and asked a question MANY of us are wanting to know the answer to but don't want to deal with the MEAN, RUDE, IGNORANT people who do not know the answer but have to speak up when its SO UNWELCOME! This is one of the ONLY sites that I have looked at that actually has a specific answer! Don't worry about the people answering your question with an insult, they apparently have their panties in a twist because they don't know how to answer your question!
