Hi! Welcome to Greenville Fit Twins!
We are so gla C where MB is teaching first grade and Sue is in graduate school. We found our love of health and wellness at Furman University though! Even though we are identical twins, we are two different people with different wellness goals. One of our goals is to show our readers what it looks like to live a healthy life! Below, you can get to know us each of us a little better!
Hi! My name is Susannah but most people tend to call me Sue. I am currently in pursuing a Master’s in Public Health with an emphasis in Nutrition from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill! So far, getting my MPH has been incredibly rewarding and I have absolutely loved diving into the world of health and nutrition. The field is constantly evolving, especially during a worldwide pandemic. I am excited to share more about my school experience with you guys! As for my personal
Hi guys! My name is Mary Bradley, but since that is a mouthful, most of my friends call me MB. I am majoring in both Politics and International Affairs and Communication Studies at Furman University. My wellness journey started when I was a year-round competitive swimmer at Team Greenville Swim Club in high school.
I loved the sport because I was able to practice time manage, set goals, and make friends from all over the state that would last me a lifetime. After being recruited by multiple D3 schools to swim, I ultimately decided not to swim in college and to go with my heart by attending Furman.
Looking back, my freshman year at Furman was definitely my lowest point in terms of wellness, since I was not working out six times a week anymore. I lost motivation to go and exercise since I did not have anything to train for anymore. I gained the notorious “freshman 15” and found myself in a bit of a funk going into my sophomore year. That was when running changed my life.
It all started with a run around the gorgeous Furman lake in August where I realized I absolutely loved the way running made me feel. Running reminded me of the how I used to feel after a long two hour practice in the pool; tired but fit. That first run led a 10k race in October, my first half marathon in February, joining the Club Running Team in the fall of my junior year, my first race wearing a Paladin jersey, and to me signing up for my first marathon that will take place in December of 2018.
I cannot wait to share more about my journey with you guys through out the course of this blog. I hope to inspire our readers with insight from my experiences and passions in the most genuine way possible. Thanks in advance for reading and for your support! ~MB
