When Joey Nunes was in high school, he never intended to become a long distance runner. After unsuccessful attempts at trying to make the baseball, golf and basketball teams, he began track in his junior year. Despite the fact that he pole vaulted, high jumped, and even ran sprints, the head track coach sent him to train with the cross country team. By the middle of his senior year, Joey worked his way up to the varsity cross country team. He went on to compete in junior college, and in 2008, transferred to a four year university, California State University Stanislaus, on an athletic scholarship.
