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.

So far, so good

It's Susie writing to you. I'm in the hotel room rinsing out some shorts and getting more fuel. Randy finished the 100-mile loop in about 5 hours. So gorgeous here -- he got lucky. Sunny, slight breeze, about 75 degrees. So now he's on his second 11-mile loop. He'll do these short loops until 5:30 pm when they shuttle all the riders onto the race track. Randy cramped up a bit on the last loop, so he drank a V-8 and took some enduralytes. There is the sweetest boxer mix pup next to me, I can hardly keep my hands off him! Oh sorry, back to the race... Lots of cyclists here, tons of recumbents. More later! Thanks for watching. Now back to your regularly scheduled Saturday.
