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.

Meeting before a Big Race

Today RAAM held the mandatory meeting/briefing for Crew Chiefs and their Racers. This meeting goes over last minute changes to route, safety issues, and other matters critical to a safe event. To give you some idea of the scale of this event that is totally unknown to the sporting public, take a look at this picture of the meeting.

You might also take a look (if you have not already) at the RAAM site. According to my count on the RAAM site, there are nine two-person teams, 31 four-person teams, 13 eight-person teams, and 42 solo riders for the 30th anniversary running of the Race Across America
