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.

Crew calls in

From Crew

Today was a better day although "the desert was brutal". Randy is now climbing out of the desert into cooler temps. He has had a couple of good rest periods and has been able to stay hydrated. The ice vest has not been comfortable, so the ice sock is being used instead.

The sun has been intense so what little skin is exposed is saturated with sunscreen.

Very timely update, thanks. With only the time station data on raam.org it was hard to tell how he was doing.

If you can get him message, please wish him well. We're pulling for him.

Been trying to follow the progress on the animated map but they have had him at 311 miles for the past 16 hours. I know that's not right! Thanks for the updates, stay cool Randy.
