Hot topic of 2017!!
From City of Fernie’s website:
On August 14th, 2017 Administration presented Council with a framework identifying the bylaws and types of changes believed necessary to create Fernie-appropriate and enforceable Short-Term Rental (STR) regulation.
Council approved the framework and has directed Administration to use it to prepare bylaw amendments to implement the regulations. It is expected that the bylaw will be presented to Council for consideration on September 11th, 2017.

Giving a lazy person, who broke her leg, a list of exercises to do on her own isn’t the greatest plan. I will confess, I’m not the best at sticking with my physiotherapy. I do it occasionally – every week! – but not like I should. It’s been 9 months, almost to the day, since the injury and I attempted running for the first time last week. Woohoo right? Not really. I found out that running gives me a terrible limp. So I tried speed walking, which felt better and I could maintain a healthy stride. Also funny to note, the second I started prancing/running like a horse I lost my limp for about 10 seconds and then it came back. You can’t say I didn’t try and I was happy there was no one around on the trail that day. For you, I hope there was a drone flying above catching all of that on video.
My gauge as to where I am in my ankle flexibility is this: I put my toes half an inch from a wall and try and bend my knee to touch the wall. Should be easy. When I started physio my knee was about 10 cm from the wall. Most days I’m so stiff I’m still 3 cm from the wall. Fast forward to last night at the gym for an hour. I checked a bunch of exercises off my list from physio and a few additional exercises and at the end of the hour I could move my leg 2 inches from the wall and still touch the wall with my knee. HUGE! So huge. Nothing motivates me more than seeing such amazing progress, so I guess I’ll be going to the gym and doing my incline treadmill walks, lunges and bosu ball balance exercises more often.
I knew you wanted to be kept up to date with my recovery and running attempts. You’re welcome.
