Oh Divine Sisterhood....

As I waited for Angela and Kylee to come around the corner to the last stretch of the race, I thought to myself that would be cool if I could finish with them. I am in no way shape or form ready to run a marathon. Not sure if I ever will be, but to be included in their milestone would be awesome. Then I see them come around the corner and I start cheering and holding Kylee's favorite sign...As they reached me I started to run with them, but on the other side of the orange cones. Then Kylee reached out with her hand and so I took it and was able to run the last little bit with my sisters hand in hand. It was a great and wonderful moment!!! I love my sisters very much!! Thank you for letting me finish the race with you!!

Cooper Grant Hanni...the new addition!!

Not 24 hours after finishing the Pocatello Marathon, we had a new addition to our family. After the races Jana told the baby he had the green light...he did not waste anytime!! When Jeff told me her water broke..I did not believe him. The timing couldn't have been more perfect. I was glad I was already at the house and so was the rest of my family...much easier for Jana and Jeff to go and not worry about the kids. It was even better that my mom, grandma and hunter were there to see the baby before they headed back to Washington. He is such a cutie and a typical Hanni!! His new brothers and sisters can't get enough of him neither can I!!

This is the whole family at the hospital! They are such a cute family!!
Josh with his new brother..he has his ears..he was pretty excited about that! Gracie and baby Cooper!
Payton and his mini me...he looks just like him now!! Here are the boys in my car heading to the hospital to see their new brother. They were so excited. I think it was the longest car ride for them. They kept asking if I missed the hospital!! Gracie copying her brothers. Kept saying are we there yet..I can't wait to see my brother!

Pocatello Marathon!!

My family this past weekend all took part in the Pocatello 5k. My sisters, Kylee and Angela, and brother Jeff all ran the marathon. It was the first for Jeff and Kylee and the second for Angela. Now it was a last minute run for Angela..she is out of control. They all did awesome and finished!! Hunter, youngest boy in my family, my nephew Josh, Me and my friends from Blackfoot Andrea and Brianna all ran the 5k. Hunter took first in his age group and ran it in 22 min. Josh came in 5th for his age group and ran it in 27 min. Andrea and Brianna who were in the same age group took 2nd and 3rd. I on the other hand had some personal bests..I beat my last time by 4 minutes and was not dead last for my age group, I was 13th out of 21..Feels like first to me. Now the burning question is when will I do something more than a 5k...I am not sure...I like the 5k..I know I can do them. Maybe I will attempt a 10k in the near future!! You never know!!

These are all the signs we made for our supporters to hold..Jana, Grandma Hanni, Mom, Payton, Grace, Kyah and Gage, thanks for coming and cheering us on. Couldn't have done it with out you. Kyah is holding the signs for me in the hotel..she is really enthused. I don't have pictures of them holding them during the race..I will have to get them from Jana!! By the way I am Burley!!
This sign cracks me up...He is also enthused..he wasn't feeling well all day, but he is a trooper and made it!
Andrea, Me, and Brianna the night before the race. They did Awesome!! I really do have friends in Blackfoot!
