Mur Gilman is passionate about living an active life and encouraging others to do so, too.  She's helped organize Bemidji's Loop the Lake Festival since its inception more than five years ago.  This Saturday, Loop the Lake organizers expect around 1,000 bicyclists to cruise the 17 miles around Lake Bemidji while enjoying entertainment and snacks along the way.  Mur stopped by the morning show to tell us more about the event.
