Professional Triathlete Chelsea Sodaro
by Taren Gesell
Just a few short years ago, Chelsea Sodaro was a professional distance runner, running at lightning speed since college. An injury in 2016 prevented her from running so she cross-trained by swimming and cycling, and then her husband suggested she try triathlon. She transitioned to the sport (ITU) in late 2016 and hasn’t looked back. Her long-disance debut race was IM 70.3 Indian Wells in 2018 which she won, and she’s been having impressive finishes ever since.
