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.

The Alton Boys, Randy's newest fans

From Susie:

"While we were getting Randy ready for his last time stations of the day, a small group of boys gathered outside the RV to meet the man riding his bike across the country! They were all polite and patient, and had many questions? Does he ride in the rain? How many miles a day does he ride? Where's Annapolis, Md.? All the boys are from Alton and some got autographs. Randy said it made his day! We hope at least one of them completes RAAM someday! Who will it be?"



According to Susie their names are: "Trevor, Adam, Algernon, Bobby Smith, Alex, Stephane, G-rod, TT All Day"

Rich adds "The autograph hounds were in Greenville, IL. All were amazed at what Randy is attempting to do. They wanted to follow him down the street, but we told them it would be too dangerous."

No doubt Randy was a true inspiration to those boys and it appears they we're all consumed by his super hero powers to pedal across the USA! Go TEAM MOURI!!

Wow, what a very special experience. I hope the children got the Randy's website info. How fun for them to follow Randy's progress along with all of his other fans.

The glory is all yours. Enjoy, you definitely deserve it.

Whoop Whoop.
Hang in there Team Mouri.

Ride Strong, Be Safe and Enjoy your fame.
