Fast 5 Kim McCormack EWD presenter Sugar Blues What inspired you to get into nutrition? I’ve always had an interest because my Mom was into healthy eating while I was growing up. Specifically I became more acutely tuned into nutrition because of my own discovery of being gluten and dairy intolerant. What is your favorite food to keep up your energy? Right now I am addicted to green smoothies. I look forward to them everyday. What keeps you sane, and keeps your head in the game? I love my morning walks with my dog, Ruby.

With hiking season upon us, the Salewa Wildfire Women’s is a great option as a light hiker or approach shoe. Not only does it look good, but it grants its hiker ease and stability all over Colorado! My favorite spot to sport the Salewa Wildfire is Mt. Sanitas or Chataqua, as these playful areas are chalk full of both fun trails and excellent spots for boudlering!

When you encounter steeper grades, these shoes perform well on slick rock because of their rubbery sole. The Wildfire’s climbing lacing system gives you the same tight grip that you’ve come to love in your climbing shoes. And at only 350 grams, these shoes are great for…Continue Reading
