Summer 5K Races in DFW

Heat + Humidity = Summer in DFW.

If you’re a runner, you know the summer season in North Texas brings a special mix of obstacles and challenges to keep your runs “interesting”, to say the least. Most of us tweak our typical workouts for summer by: running earlier in the morning or after sunset; doing less mileage; hydrating double-time; incorporating more cross-training like, spin class, swimming; running in the AC (aka the treadmill), etc.

Racing also undergoes a big change in the summer. In most warm places, like the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, the majority of races are shorter distances and take place early in the morning or later in the evening – around 7 or 8pm. This is why summer is 5K season!  The 5K distance is short and sweet; however, under the brutal summer conditions, it is ‘long enough’ for even the most seasoned runner.

A summer 5K race is the perfect time to run your very first 5K or an opportunity to break your personal record! Take advantage of the easy-going, laid-back summer vibes and cruise into a 5K PR or cross your very first 5K finish line! See Runner’s World’s 5K Training Plans for all levels and goals: http://www.runnersworld.com/tag/5k-training-plans.

Pick a race, sign up and set a goal! You are much more likely to stick to your training plans if you sign up and commit to a race. Even veteran runners don’t want to run a marathon (or even a half) in the summer – so why not make this the time to shatter your 5K personal best? Check out all the many 5K races you can run this summer, right here in Dallas-Fort Worth: http://www.dfwraces.com/.

So, let’s embrace the heat, set some new goals and rock the 5K this summer! Don’t forget your water 🙂

How to Choose the Right Mortgage Lender

You found the perfect house in the best neighborhood with your ideal yard, all at the right price. Your offer is accepted, the home inspection report comes back without any red flags, final negotiations are settled…all that is left is the work of the mortgage lender to make sure everything is ready for closing. A few days before closing, you hear that your financing fell through and you are left without a mortgage lender. You lose the house.

All too often, buyers lose their home in the final stage of the process, all because their mortgage company dropped the ball and failed to get the job done. With something as important as buying a home, you don’t want to put your trust in a second rate lender that does not have the expertise, customer care, diligence, and motivation to help you close on your home.

If you are looking for a mortgage company in the DFW area to deliver you to closing on your dream home, Colonial National Mortgage is the lender for you! Located in Arlington, TX, loan officer James Miller and the rest of the team at Colonial are dedicated to helping their clients have a positive and stress-free experience that successfully results in their clients closing on their perfect home.

When no other lenders can get the job done and the buyers are thinking they are going to lose the house, James finds a way to help the buyers close…on time! For a mortgage company and officer that will take personal care to help you get the necessary financing and navigate around all the potential roadblocks to buy your home, James Miller at Colonial National Mortgage is there for you every step of the way to deliver you to a successful closing.
