Yukako Lipsey and Michelle Binkowski (Team name: Pink Martinis) showed that they have more than just computer-based skills by taking on 16 feats this summer in Seattle’s Foam Fest 5K obstacle course. Three of the obstacles were literally in the water at Lake Sammamish (a lily-pad run, inner-tube hopping and a log-roll).
