I’ve got a serious case of medal-envy after reading all the blog and Twitter updates from the Walt Disney Marathon this weekend (congratulations to everyone who participated, by the way!)

I love to build a holiday around a race and have a wish list as long as my arm of half and full marathons that I would like to complete, everywhere from Iceland to Cuba.

This year, I’m focusing on getting faster in the shorter races and building my fitness base instead of putting myself through another marathon when I’m not ready for it. I haven’t curbed the urge to run abroad, but I think it would be smarter to combine shorter races or informal runs with existing holiday plans.

I would love any recommendations for 10 – 20km races around Europe over the summer and Nevada in October. Can any of my followers suggest something?

Do you have any destination races on your bucket list?
