I'm Randy Mouri and this blog is about my quest to be an official finisher in the Race Across AMerica (RAAM), the toughest endurance race in the world. It's over and I became an official solo finisher in 11 days, 1 hour and 13 minutes! We continue to raise money and awareness on behalf of Habitat for Humanity of Northern Virginia (Habitat NoVa). If you would like to make a donation to Habitat NoVa, please visit my page on Habitat’s site. Endless thanks to our sponsors and all the folks that have made such generous contributions. Team Mouri would not have been able to travel so comfortably, which certainly may have changed the outcome of the race.

Just another week...

Well another week has gone by and I've managed to keep my target mileage up. But only through a series of morning and evening indoor spins.  My goal was 345 miles for the week and I rode 370.  It's tough on the weekend, because those are supposed to be the gravy miles.  Long and easy.  But the winter isn't cooperating and it has made the roads and trails a bit on the dangerous side.
One of the few bad sections of the W&OD trail on Sunday.
I need higher quality miles leading into the Sebring 24 hour Challenge, in February.  Right now it appears to be a big enough challenge just to get some long rides in.  Keep checking in.  Sooner or later I'll have a nice sunny photo to post with warmer temps.

If you haven't noticed, the Homer Simpson countdown clock was up for a brief period of time.  I had to remove him because he wouldn't stay in one place.  Long story....just like all of the others still to come.

See you in a week.

Thanks Earl. Love your write up on your latest ride. You are the man. Keep the streak going. You're getting the coldest months out of the way first, so the rest will be easy.
