I think I’m becoming the neighborhood eccentric. Over the past several weeks, I recognize that perhaps I don’t come across as the sanest person on the block. For instance:
- I’m often seen walking the dog in my bare feet
- I am standing up at my desk instead of sitting (by the way, I really LOVE this little experiment)
- Several of my neighbors have seen the toe spacers (Correct Toes–review to come) that I wear most of the day.
- I head out for a run in my bare feet, then circle back around to stick on my shoes, which await me at the end of the driveway.
- Today while running barefoot, I scraped the top of my big toe. After I put my shoes back on to finish the run, the blood gushed all over the top of my shoe. Walked the kids to school like that.
- I’ve got my kids running/walking in minimalist shoes and will be pushing bare feet as much as possible as the weather warms.
- I pretty much walk around preaching the minimalist gospel.

I know this is potentially obnoxious behavior, but guess what? I don’t really care. I’m doing what works for me and really, there’s no harm/no foul. So I’ll gladly play the role of “strange lady” on the block!
