Canon’s story may sound very typical at first, married and has two kids, 9 & 7.  Grew up active in a small country town, played all sports as a youngster but focused on soccer in high school and went on to play in college.  Stayed active, until like many people fell victim to the typical office job / marriage / new dad lifestyle and got out of shape.  As a result of stress; poor diet; lack of sleep; too much alcohol, health issues started.  Canon was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis, a chronic inflammatory bowel disease that causes inflammation in the digestive tract. Motivated by the desire to be strong for his family and in case a major surgery was needed Canon took control of his health and fitness.  Now at 41 he is in the best shape of his life.  Canon does trail running; CrossFit; ruck hikes; mountain biking and completed the David Goggins 4x4x48 mile challenge.  

 

What a treat to get to know Canon.  Some people are going to have a great attitude no matter what and Canon is one of those people.  We really appreciated him sharing his personal story with us.  We learned more about what it is like living with the autoimmune condition, Ulcerative Colitis.  We also get into some other not so pleasant stuff when it comes to feet issues and when nature calls on the trails.  We found ourselves laughing and sharing maybe a little too much LOL.  It was a fun episode but also one that could really help someone struggling with a similar health issue.  We think you will feel inspired and hopeful after listening to Canon.
