  • Don't forget to join us on Wednesday!

    Join us Wednesday, January 26th at 5:30 PM EST to kick-off 2022 in proper CSLA style! Remember how fun our awards were at the end of 2020? Well, we're doing it again, and there's still time to get your nominations in! Nominate yourself or another CSLA member -- we want to celebrate YOU!

    For instance, I won my first strongwoman medal in 2021 -- certainly not a hobby I knew I'd participate in pre-pandemic days! And I will shamelessly make everyone look at my medal and tell you how I was 5 seconds off of a US women's record...and I'm not even a little bitter about that five seconds.

    So grab a cup of cocoa or get cozy in your favorite blanket, and we'll see you on the 26th!
