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.

First day

Randy started right at 1530 RAAM time and set off along the parade section to the begining of the unescorted race section. The roads in that section are so narrow that support is not permitted until the roads widen out. The Follow Van and Support Van left after Randy got started and made thier way to the rendezvous.

The RV (Crew #2, Earl, Tim, Susie, & Connie) waited out the early part of the ride here at elevation above Borrego Springs. Borrego Springs daytime temperature was 109 and this location was breezy and 81. Much more comfortable for napping.
