Top Five Dream Destination Races

I consider myself a “recreational runner” in the sense that I incorporate running into my lifestyle because aside from its health benefits, it’s fun!  I don’t do it as a profession, for prestige or bragging rights, or anything remotely in that direction.  As such, I do have a very long list of dream destination races…
