These are the random musings of a few friends. We’re all a bunch of regular guys who love our families, love God, love life, and travel a lot for work. So we run, we write, we read, and we seek a greater level of mindfulness. Running gives you time to see beautiful things and think beautiful thoughts. Writing helps you express feelings you can’t speak. Reading opens your mind to new thought. Mindfulness forces you to be more aware of who you are and how you are treating others. The morningrunguys talk about these things when we’re together, email and text each other thoughts and encouragement, and hold one another accountable to our shared values. We blog about them here along with sharing how we deal with the challenges life throws at us.

Here’s a little bit about the morningrunguys:

John Searby

I’m a Christ follower, a husband, a father, a brother, a son, and a lover of life. I live in Charlotte, NC with my wife and two kids where we spend as much time in the outdoors as possible. I run, mtn bike, hike, and chase kids around to keep the blood flowing and I read as many historical fiction, crime novel, and leadership books as I can to relax. Our family loves to travel together and experience the ‘lesser knowns’ in this great country of ours, particularly the Southeast.

I travel all over the United States for Adams+Fairway, the largest privately held outdoor advertising company in the U.S. where I lead our college and university group. Everywhere I go, I take my sneakers and get a morning run. I’ve completed 3 half marathons and one marathon. Running for me is a path to zen and zen is my path to a uncluttered relationship with God.

I’m a Christ follower, a husband, a father, a brother, a son, and a lover of life. I live in Wilmington, OH with my wife and two boys. I cart kids and coach kids in sports as a ‘second job’ and spend as much time at Dale Hollow Lake as possible. To relax and unwind I read, play guitar, sing, listen to music and occasionally write for this blog. I started this group’s interest in Zen and mindfulness and try to push the boundaries every now and then.

I am an optometrist by trade and practice in two offices in Southeast Ohio. I’m a washed up former college basketball and baseball player who hates running but sees it as a necessary evil and required compliment to some strength training.
