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 Gathering of the Crew

If you read the last post, you know that Susie and Rich are driving cross country with the Follow van. At last check in they had left Jackson, Tennessee and reached Amarillo, Texas.

(video at the link shows what Texas looks like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9DyADhITvIc) .

Meantime our medical team had taken to the air and is now in Encenitas, California. They say they have "Been going to all the running/bike stores and everyone wants to know about our solo RAAM rider!"

It also turns out that in the pressure of acquiring and packing everything so that Susie and Rich can take it to the start, a item of medical grear was forgotten. But Al remembered, ordered it shipped express and it will likely arrive at the start before the rest of the kit does. Don't ask me what was forgotten as they've not told me.
