Chelsea Sodaro is a professional triathlete specializing in the 70.3, or Half Ironman distance. She and her husband live in Marin County, just outside of San Francisco. Chelsea ran for Davis Senior H.S. before competing for UC Berkeley. She was a 3X All American at UC Berkely and won 2 national titles before she had a disappointing run at the Olympic trials for the 10k. Just 3 years ago, Chelsea did her first triathlon and raced on the ITU circuit, where she won her last race in June of 2018. She then joined Coach Matt Dixon the Purple Patch Squad and switched to the 70.3 distance. Chelsea won her 2nd ever attempt at the 70.3 distance and hasn’t looked back. Since that first win, she’s been on the podium in every race except for the 70.3 World Championships in Nice, France, where she placed 4th in the entire world. While Chelsea may not be a household name in the triathlon world yet, I can pretty much promise you it won’t be long… Chelsea is the complete package. An incredible athlete, a hard worker, and she’s just an awesome person that I want to be friends with in real life.
