We didn't see this one coming: The St. Patrick's Day Fitness Crawl. On the face of it, it seems all wrong -- the middle of March in a drinkin' town ought to be reserved for unhealthy activities, not show-offy strength prances. The St. Patrick's Day Fitness Crawl contains no corned beef and cabbage, no whiskey, no beer, and no green food coloring. Instead, prepare for calisthenics, "cardio," boxing two ways, and, God in Heaven, yoga. Before you panic, here's a way to spin it so it makes more sense: This bootcamp-style ordeal could make it possible to eat more than you ordinarily would during the rest of the weekend. And when you eat more, you can drink more! Yay! The St. Patrick's Day Fitness Crawl has now been recuperated for the purposes of debauchery.
