Ironman Texas 2018

Does anyone have any Houston connections that would be willing to host a professional triathlete in the lead up to Ironman Texas?

Sadly, it's not for me but for Australian Pro Michael Fox. Fun fact: in my very first season doing triathlons (2011) I was a homestay for him (apartment-stay?) for a race in DC that no longer exists. I had no idea at the time that I was interested in becoming a pro triathlete myself, but it was a very cool experience and I learned a lot from him. Look, you too can host a professional and then become one less than 3 years later! Honestly, serving as a homestay is super easy and a huge help, especially for those pros taking a gamble and traveling long distances to come to a race.

And so you're not confused with the actor, here's his instagram: https://www.instagram.com/fox_endurance. I can serve as a reference if needed that he was incredibly nice, quiet and did not steal anything or murder us, like my roommate at the time was convinced was going to happen.

Now that the thread is started, figured it could do double duty... anyone here racing?

    I personally cannot host, but have some friends who might be able to. How early is he coming over and how long would he be staying?

    Right now he is looking at 22nd to 29th of April, if possible. Not sure about flexibility but I don't think he's booked anything yet. Thanks for checking!

    If he wins the event, do I have to be worried he'd bring home one of the local women and have his way with her in my kid's bed?

    @wchevron hahaha he is fresh off a honeymoon so not too worried. Though maybe you could encourage it and then later go on TRS to share the salacious/horrifying details.
