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.

Kansas and Comments

Since the last post:

Randy has been riding strongly and has passed:
TS 21, in Kim, CO
TS 22 in Walsh, CO
TS 23 in Ulysses, KS
TS24 in Montezuma, KS

As of TS 24, Randy has ridden 1374 miles and is closing in on the half-way point.

And yes, your comments and encouragement are important. The Crew reads them to Randy to help motivate him to keep spinning. So please keep them coming.

Amazing!! Somewhere the Dude maybe taking it easy for all of us, but we know that Randy is out there busting his butt for us, too.

"Anything is possible. You can be told that you have a 90-percent chance or a 50-percent chance or a 1-percent chance, but you have to believe, and you have to fight." – Lance Armstrong

Randy, your determination is awe inspiring! Thank you for what you are teaching me and my children.

Thank you for that "riding strongly" comment -- so good to hear. Tommy just told me through the phone that Randy is now in 2nd place (over 50 that is, but those are the years that count, up till then it's all just practice)!! So moving up through the ranks too, I hear. We are so proud of you Randy!! Ride on to Annapolis -- the winds at your sails!! (bad pun I know, couldn't help it)!!!
