If you are like me and don’t have a background in swimming you will need all the help you can get and I have done enough Ironman and triathlon competitions around the world to give you the advice you need in order to get through your first race. Throughout 9 Full Ironman events worldwide including Nice, France, Florianopolis, Brazil, Cozumel, Mexico, Cairns, Australia, Mallorca, Spain, Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, Santa Rosa, California, Kalmar, Sweden, And Vichy, France I have experienced almost everything that can go wrong in an Ironman swim.

The Ironman circuit has offered me many opportunities to travel over the last eight years. Since 2008, I have competed in and completed eight international Full Ironman races and the Inaugural Ironman Vineman race this year in Sonoma, Ca.
The 2016 Ironman Vichy, France is in it’s 2nd year of operation. The Vichy Ironman and 70.3 offers a unique blend of history and beauty to a very professional and technical course!
2015 was a HUGE year for Jack Nunn. It had him compete in over 40 races and events over the calendar year. Jack was featured in the 2016 Nationwide Issue Organic Spa Magazine and the more local Rolling Hills Magazine.
Ironman 140.6 Kalmar, Sweden is a model of how every major Ironman should be: fun, historical, flat, and beautiful. And the fan base…WOW!
Ironman Vineman: A Legacy Of Tradition And Now The Future Of Ironman Events
Over the last couple years I have heard more and more people talking about the Vineman race in Sonoma county and now since Ironman took it over and bought the rights to the race in 2016 I decided to be one of the first athletes to sign up. Ironically this would be my first full Ironman race on U.S. soil as the previous six Ironmans I competed in took part overseas and in Mexico.
Over the years I have taken many different kinds of supplements and I’m always looking for that natural edge to help push me beyond my limits.

In November 2011, I made the decision to sign up for my third Full Ironman in Cozumel, Mexico on November, 25th 2012. For those who have never heard of the Ironman, it is a long-distance triathlon which includes a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride, and a full marathon consisting of 26.2 miles of running, one section after the other without rest. This extreme endurance event has been held around the world since 1978.
I knew that training for Ironman Cozumel, Mexico was going to be a really tough journey for the next year or so while managing two Roworx facilities, training 20 hours a week on average, and doing all the work behind the scenes in order for my fitness center to flourish. Throughout the past year it has been a massive journey indeed.
