Gear West Store Long Lake MNWaffles with greek yogurt and fresh berries were disappearing quickly at Gear West (, located in Long Lake, MN. Every Saturday morning Gear West sponsors a run/hike and provides breakfast for the participants. Don and I were there to represent ALTAI on July 18 and co-sponsor the event. Long Lake Gear West RunsParticipant numbers were down slightly due to folks cleaning up their yards after storms swept in particularly hard the previous night, with a local tornado and strong winds knocking out power for thousands and downing trees. This morning Mother Nature was equally hard to deny – showing her sunny side and keeping spirits light for a fine run. We enjoyed the meal along with the runners returning from their weekly morning jaunt. A big “thank you” to Corey for inviting us to the event – next time we’ll rent a paddleboard for some fun on nearby Long Lake!

Get out any Saturday for some fresh air while the weather is still nice, you might even see us there!
