Chariot makes good ones (mine are different ages, but they both fit in quite nicely). We have a Cougar 2. You need to purchase the jogging kit separately, but mine tracks wonderfully and it only weighs 24lb. If you just have one child in it, you can quickly reconfigure the seatbelts and have one seat in the center. The low center of gravity is nice. Also, try hooking a regular double jogger to the back of your bicycle.

eta: Chariot makes actual jogging strollers, too, but my suggestion is to stick with the trailer.

I have a Double Kool-Stride jogger. I got it after my second baby to start walking. The peg perego was just killing me. So I've had it for 6 years now, and love it. My dh uses for jogging - I just walk fast. The only down side is if you want to take it in your car the Wheels easily come off and it folds, but you still need a big space. I can fit in my suburban, but I mostly use it in the neighborhood and I walk back of forth to school to pick up my kids. I have to say it was the best investment I ever made.

We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE our Mountain Buggy Urban Double. It's not technically designed for jogging, but dw has run/rollerbladed with it without any trouble. I'm more of a walker myself. But this is definitely the best twin stroller I've ever tried.

HTH!

I have the Dreamer Design double jogger. It's FABULOUS! It's even lighter than my single jogger, has great sunshades, & is super smooth. My dh & I fight over who pushes the twins in the D.D. & who pushes our single stroller every run!
Oh, also, I purchased our jogger practically brand new off of Craigslist!
Good luck,
