Black Ninja Runs Again

I woke up today and decided that I will run outside. It is the first day for Daylight Savings Time (DST) this year. That means, Spring is in the air! I looked at the temperature gauge outside and it was a few degrees above freezing. The snow that has blanketed our surrounding for most of […]
