    SNM: Suggestion for STS progress ticker

    SNM, I just completed STS and I was thinking it would be great if you all could add an optional line to the STS progress ticker that says: I have completed STS X number of times. Where we can denote the X to be equal to however many times we've done STS. Thanks, Michelle

    Siblings/family members who are on the CatheNation?

    Just wondering how many of us have made the CatheNation a family affair. My sister (aka catchick65) and I have been exercising with Cathe for about 2 years and joined the CatheNation about 18 or so months ago.
