An Iowa man is running 40 marathons in 40 days around Lake Michigan to raise money for cancer awareness and cancer research. Patch caught up with Cannon at Klode Park in Whitefish Bay on Wednesday and he explained what he thinks about when he's running and who and what fuels his drive to continue.

This marathon will take him 1,037 miles along the entire Lake Michigan coastline, the sixth-largest lake in the world.
He’s keeping fans updated on Facebook as well, with posts about everything from what he’s having for breakfast, like a double-decker salami and cheese sandwich, to his relationship with “Mom,” his nickname for Lake Michigan.
There’s a Twitter account following his every move as well at @RunCannonRun.
