The Fastest Known Time of the Year Awards are back for the 3rd year! This special Episode features amazing descriptions of the #5, #4, and #3 FKTs of the Year. Adding to the fun is Hillary Allen as co-host, and an appearance by Joe Grant, who beautifully articulates what is meaningful about this sport. "When you stop racing and you start dreaming, that's when the magic happens. And for me, that's what trail running and racing is all about." -- Hillary Allen "My experience was raw, and profound to me. I was happy with the learning that occurred on the route, I was happy with the effort, I was happy with learning the route ... (It wasn't the "number") … Yeah, so the number, there's something to it, but It's not the defining aspect of what makes this notable to me." -- Joe Grant

April has been a runner for 25 years.  She ran in grade school but then gave it up after quitting smoking while in University.  She ran road races for many years and was sponsored by Saucony for 4 years in the 2000s.  In 2010 she made the switch to trail ultra marathons and has run 50km up to 100 miles.  After undergoing 3 knee surgeries in 2014, and taking a year to recover, she came back to ultra marathons and discovered the 24hr event. She was the 2016 24hr Canadian Champion and ran as part of Team Canada at the World 24hr Championships in Belfast, Northern Ireland and then was invited to a race in Foshan, China,
