Throw-Down spectators this past weekend voted on the best dressed team and the winner was..."WOD-UP"! Dressed in bright neons, crop tops and headbands, the team even had their own "mascot" - 6 year-old Braedyn! Comprised of Kelli Rasmussen, Sarah Farrant, Glenn Booher, and Alex Ibarra, the team wasn't just in vogue; they also narrowly missed going into the Finals WOD. They looked good while crushing the event all morning long. Highlights included Kelli completing a total of 50 pull-ups on WOD #1, and Alex running around a 5:30 mile - in the middle of a WOD! The stylin athletes each took home a Lululemon gift card - so you can expect them to continue rocking the latest fashions.
And a shout-out to the other crowd favorite, "Barbell Ballerinas", who were a close 2nd place. Each athlete wore the name of a different Paradigm coach under their eye, a bright green tutu, and a jeweled crown...all while deadlifting, running, and doing pull-ups. Yes, even teammate Greg...pretty epic.
