Chatting with Chelsea Sodaro

Tuesday Nov 07, 2023

Tuesday Nov 07, 2023

In this episode: Eric and Ryan talk about the Noosa Triathlon. The event embodies just about everything we love about our sport and community.
We're then joined by 2022 IRONMAN World Champion Chelsea Sodaro. We talk about the conflict between being service-oriented and the selfishness that can be a part of long-course triathlon, Sodaro's openness about her mental health, and being an advocate to break down barriers to access our sport with her work with &Mother.

Two-time XTERRA World Champion Brad Weiss is this week's guest. We talk at length about the IRONMAN World Championships in Nice and his penalty and subsequent recovery ride and run from it. We also talk about being able to pivot from one discipline to another as he preps for this weekend's XTERRA World Championship event. And, for the gear heads, a bit of a deep dive on his mountain bike and choosing the right ride for a course. Dig in!

The first half of the IRONMAN World Championships have come and gone. We go in-depth with our man on the ground from Nice, and newest member of the Slowtwitch family, Brad Williams. Expo, venue, behind the scenes, Sam Laidlow's win, broadcast -- it's all here in this week's episode.

Ryan is back from vacation and COVID to join Eric as we lead into the men's IRONMAN World Championship race. And we're wondering -- is it the time of year, the fact that it's in Europe, or some combination of the current race calendar that's making it feel less like it's World Championship time? We also talk PTO, our picks for Sunday's race, the thankless job that is race commenting, and more.
