Niki (in red), wife to Dave (who I only knew as the bartender from my days at TOTS until I met Niki) and Mom to 2 year old Parker, is 37 weeks pregnant with Trip. She's a fellow VT grad, stay at home mom, and fitness instructor at Mom's Treehouse. Seriously, the woman never stops.
AC (in white), wife to Corey, fellow teacher friend, and mom to 8 month old triplets. THAT, right there, is an accomplishment, and she and Corey haven't seemed to miss a beat! This is her first race since the kids have been born.
Missy (in black and pink), also a teacher friend, runs to enjoy good wine and good food. A girl after my own heart. No babies of her own because there are plenty to go around in this crowd!
Lori (not pictured below) and I ran track in high school. Ok, we mainly just brought up the rear of the group and chatted each day at practice. She called me in December 2010 saying she might be pregnant. A few days later it was confirmed. In August 2011 sweet Emily was born. This race was her first one as a mommy too.

|Thank you, Corey, for the great shots!|
I have a frame that reads, "Friends are the family we choose on our own." So the weekend was busy. The days leading up to it were hectic. But the time together was fun and meaningful. And that's what it's all about.
