Ganeeban DOES NOT Run Shamrock'n

I’m sure my pessimistic running attitude has been shining through lately. Well, as I sit here on this gloomy Sunday afternoon. I’m a little sad, but mostly relieved that the race has come and gone without me. I’m bordering the line of a bad allergy bout, slight sinus infection, OR
