My roses finally bloomed!

My roses finally bloomed!, originally uploaded by ccervant_99.

Because I have to go downstairs to the hotel treadmills and run at least three miles and I am NOT feeling the TM love this morning, so I thought I'd get online for a bit before I subject myself to it. But I got nothing, so you get this.

The not-feeling-the-love-of-the-run may have something to do with the 7+ miles I ran last night. It may have to do with the first half of those 7 miles being uphill. It may have to do with getting NO nap at all this weekend, and having a full, packed schedule the 2 days I was home. It may have to do with finally feeling the high altitude here in Denver for the first time on a run yesterday. It may have to do with the fact that I fell asleep before 9:30 last night, even though the team had called me to come out and have dinner with them and hang with them, and I feel like a loner fool for not going (but I'd just run and was eating a low-fat Subway sandwich that for whatever reason just seemed like it would hit the spot (and it did!), so I just couldn't get myself motivated to clean up and be with people).

Or, maybe I just really like this photo of my yellow roses FINALLY blooming. They're still not as full of blooms as they were last year -- I think I may need to feed them when I get home this weekend. I didn't get a chance to last weekend because of the SNOW(!&#%!) over Easter, but I'll have a 3-day weekend this go-round, so I'll be able to actually tend to my roses. Or at least that's the plan.

OK, if I'm going to be dressed and ready to head to the office in an hour and a half, I have to go downstairs now. Really. So. I. should. go. now.

I have mornings like that too. Just one more cup of coffee!

Wow you wrote this baby early, no wonder you're in a funk. Congrats on getting your 7 miler in, when it sounds like dinner with the peeps and gnoshing on goodies was more what your head wanted. You rock. Just think about how strong you're getting running at altitude! Next TX race you're going to smash that old PR.

Beeeautiful rose! I'm so jealous! My tulips have poked through. So excited! Now if it would kindly stop snowing here too...

Awesome rose! I need to get some yellow roses. We're all pink and red (but with a white bush, too)

My wife counted 9 rose bushes currently living around our house, so that officially makes it a hobby.
