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.

Laundry Day

Mary (still in safety vest) and Connie do the laundry. Just one of the many "invisible" jobs that need to be done to get Randy across the country.

And you meet interesting people crossing the country this way. Meet the Browns, Biddle and Betsy Brown. They are mountain bike riders who travel to trails in their RV. Biddle is 86 and Betsy is 84. Hope I'm still riding when I'm their age.

We are having a gorgeous sunset in charlote as Tom and I head to the mountains for the annual blood, sweat and gears ride. We are weenies, only doing the 50, with over 7000ft of climbing. Randy, we'll be pedaling your bike tomorrow. We are so proud of you and your crew. You will make it, we know you will and then we can all say we knew you when. Keep going, your dream is just a mile down the road. love you guys, roll on!!

We love the picture of you behind a van with mountain bikes and your white haired lady friend. We are ready for you to be cruising through VA headed for MD. Just a few miles to go. Now is the time for your mental toughness to shine.

We're sending our psychic energy to fuel this last phase
